A man, Simon, and a boy, David, arrive in an unspecified country in an unspecified time, with no memories of their former lives. Together they must forge new lives for themselves, while Simon searches for David’s biological mother. While the title offers one way to view the story, it is open to many interpretations, and therein lies its strength. An intelligent and thought-provoking read.
