Summary
  • "The Little Book is the extraordinary tale of Wheeler Burden, California exiled heir of the famous Boston banking Burdens, philosopher, student of history, legend's son, rock idol, writer, lover of women, recluse, half-Jew, and Harvard baseball hero. In 1988 Wheeler Burden is forty-seven, living in San Francisco. Suddenly he - still his modern self - is wandering in a city and time he knows mysteriously well, fin de siecle Vienna. It is 1897, precisely ninety-one years before his last memory and half a century before his own birth. Wheeler soon acquires appropriate clothes, money, lodging, a mentor in Sigmund Freud, a bitter rival, a powerful crush on a luminous young woman, and an incredible and surprising insight into the war-hero father he never knew."
  • "But the truth at the center of Wheeler's dislocation in time remains a stubborn mystery that will take a lifetime of memories to unravel and that will, in the end, reveal nothing short of the eccentric Burden family's unrivaled impact upon the very course of human history."--BOOK JACKET
