Dr. Edwin Spindrift, a very ordinary lecturer in linguistics, has been sent home from Burma with a brain tumor. Closer to words than people, his sense of reality is further altered by his condition.

Things and people he hardly knew existed outside of his dictionaries swoop down on him as he careens through adventures in nighttime London.
