In this "farfetched" story of reincarnation among the beautiful people, an actor stumbles upon traces of his previous lives. "In what begins as a highly literate parapsychological puzzler, Carroll shifts gears into fantasy and fairy tale, with results that may not be wholly satisfactory to fans of any one genre," commented PW.
