The pilot is killed, and the passenger shockingly burned, internally injured, and unidentifiable. The identity of the aeroplane is also a mystery, and after some days of unconsciousness the passenger dies nameless and unknown. Three people, a nurse, a clairvoyant, and a poet are so moved by his fate that each of them reconstructs one aspect of the circumstances that led him to such a terrible end. So through their imaginations we learn the whole story" [quote from the jacket blurb affixed to the endpaper]. Good. Item #303012
