NPR Summary

"Now I am going to tell the story of something that happened one night years ago, and the events of the morning and afternoon that followed."

The Incompletes begins with this simple promise. But to try to get at the complete meaning of the day's events, the narrator must first take us on an international tour. The result is a novel disturbed by half-knowledge, haunted by the fact that any complete version of events is always just outside our reach.
