    This extraordinary and unique work is, on one level, the story of a motorcycle trip taken by the narrator and his son. While they ride, the narrator delivers a Chautauque, an old-time series of popular talks intended to edify and entertain, improve the mind and bring culture and enlightenment to the ears and mind of the hearer. The Chautauque covers a wide range of topics, from motorcycle maintenance through an inquiry into what is best to the creation of a philosophical system capable of reconciling science, religion and humanism.

    On another and connecting level, the book is the story of the narrator's confrontation with the past and with Phaedrus, the ghost of his former self- a brilliant, questing, questioning man who went mad under the burden of his pursuit of ideals, underwent shock therapy, died and now has returned.
