Seventeen years after the Decline of the American Empire, Rémy is terminally ill. His estranged son is called in to support. This is about the lost illusions of social democracy and history, but also of most illusions as old friends come to accompany his last moments. Sex drive, vitality, civilization, all the -isms are revised with intelligence, indignation, cynicism, and humor.
