Summary
On February 22, 1862, two days after his death, Willie Lincoln was laid to rest in a marble crypt in a Georgetown cemetery. That very night, shattered by grief, Abraham Lincoln arrives at the cemetery under cover of darkness and visits the crypt, alone, to spend time with his son's body. Willie finds himself in a strange purgatory -- the bardo -- where ghosts commiserate, quarrel, and enact bizarre acts of penance. Within this transitional state - called, in Tibetan tradition, the bardo - a monumental struggle erupts over young Willie's soul
Summary
Traces a night of solitary mourning and reflection as experienced by the sixteenth president after the death of his eleven-year-old son at the dawn of the Civil War
