A novel set in the far, far future, where everyone is about as posthuman as you can imagine. A little reminiscent of Moorcock's Dancers at the End of Time, in tone, but with more obvious humanity and human characters. It appears that the main character, now happily going about his business, was some sort of maverick in the past. The current group of people in power, including his father, removed a large chunk of his memory. This is a long period of time, some centuries, are the people in this era are functionally immortal.
He tries to find out why, and what he should do about it. He gets into some serious amount of trouble as a destabilising influence in a society that is being manipulated into stagnation by its masters.
