An American poet in Italy learns of a terrible tragedy that sends him into a deep spiral of personal reflection. The next day he buys a small notebook before boarding a train from Venice to Florence. Moved by this loss, the political forces operating back home, and the culture and people surrounding him, he finds himself attempting to write a book of poetry in a single day.

This book, subtitled Autobiomythography V, constitutes the fifth installment in a series by Joe Pan.
