He likes nothing better... than to fly along on his motorbike, invincible and immortal. But one day, dodging a mysterious shadow on the road, he crashes into a barrier and loses his right foot. Walter is a descendant of Dutch yeomen and since the day of the accident he has been haunted by their ghosts. When he receives a new plastic foot he is determined to find his father who deserted his family years ago, and to uncover the secrets of his ancestors.

              One family's adventures in LSD: the brilliantly strange new novel from the mind of `one of the most inventive, adventurous and accomplished fiction writers in the US today' (Lionel Shriver) It is Harvard in the early 1960s. Just off campus, Dr Timothy Leary plays host for his PhD... students, laying on a spread of cocktails, pizza and LSD. Among the guests is Fitzhugh Loney, a psychology student, and his librarian wife Joanie. Married young, and both diligently and unglamorously toiling to support their son, theirs are hardly the faces you would put to the spectre of counterculture haunting the campus. But their nights on LSD prove so extraordinary - so revelatory, so earth-shattering, so downright seductive - that Fitz and Joanie soon find themselves captivated captives to the whims of the charismatic and subversive Dr Tim. Join Fitz and Joanie for the trip: as sultry Mexican nights at Hotel Catalina give way to a ramshackle mansion in upstate New York, where thirty devotees - students, wives and children - play out the final act of a terrible, beautiful experiment.
