Michael Theodore, an American and proudly so, is the second son of the late King Justin of Marania. Sixty years ago, when Michael was a boy of ten, his father sent him hastily to America to save him from a violent and brutal revolution that had broken out in Marania. Those of the family who escaped were banished forever on pain of death. At times Michael wonders what it would be like to see once again the homeland of which he retains only fragmentary memories. Would there be unseen welcoming presences and the half-heard sound of beloved voices? Or would all be blasted and annihilated by a lifetime of severance? Dire events in present day Marania compel Michael to choose his role in a mad international tragicomedy linked with what is to him the absurd myth of royalty.
