Summary :

Welcome to the weird world of Adam. A little wisp of a man appears from who-knows-where, apparently suffering from delusions, schizophrenia, paranoia, and mental maladies not yet named. Falling under the sway of Sister Louella, a phony medium, Adam begins an extraordinary series of misadventures.

Louella discovers that Adam actually has the powers she has been faking -- and more. He is in fact a potential superbeing and Louella decides that he can be the greatest moneymaking property of all time. But her clients, used to being gulled by Louella and terrified by the real thing when it confronts them, all defect.

Deserted by Louella, Adam begins a series of careers that put Walter Mitty to shame for lack of imagination. His powers bring him smashing success -- always accompanied by crushing disaster. At last, at the verge of utter destruction, lost in despair, Adam finds a friend who leads him to redeem his potential -- to become a man, and something much more than a man.
