"But this is more than simply a story of crime and punishment. Now we turn to our own times - from the father to his son, Frank. Haunted by the great affair of his youth, which ended when the girl he loved lost her hold on reality, Frank has never come to terms with his own good fortune. He is a reluctant movie actor - a star, even - but finds his work increasingly unfulfilling. That is, until a mysterious director offers him an intriguing new role, and Frank sets out across the country - from New York to Tennessee to Texas, from Oklahoma City to Kansas City, and, finally to Los Angeles - in pursuit of the true story of his family, of what has brought him to this fork in the road."--BOOK JACKET.
