Summary (From the publisher):

Giacopo Tigor, the unassuming hero of Peter Stephan Jungk's novel, is a professor of mathematics, a proponent of Euclidian geometry reeling from a succession of intellectual defeats sustained at the hands of the advocates of chaos theory. Returning to his native city of Trieste for a conference, Tigor finds he is no longer able to face the banal constraints of the life he has made, and so he goes AWOL-first to Paris, where he fulfills a boyhood dream to work in the Odéon Theater as a stagehand. There he experiences a vision of Mount Ararat, holy mountain of the Armenian people, the landing point of Noah's Ark. His vision drives him onward to the East, where his flight evolves into a quest-to find the remains of the Ark.
