Sit down, Daniel's going to tell you a story. On the weekend of January 10, 2004, American monologist Spalding Gray killed himself by jumping off the Staten Island Ferry in New York City. That same weekend, Daniel MacIvor was in California, visiting a psychic surgeon who offered to save his life by removing a spiritual entity that had attached to him. But what if Spalding's death had something to do with Daniel's entity? Linking these two true parallel stories is fiction derived from Gray's obsessions and MacIvor's inventions about a man named Howard who had forgotten how to live.
