Pilgrim is the story of a man who cannot die. Ageless, sexless, deathless and timeless, Pilgrim has inhabited endless lives and times. In April 1912, after he has failed, once again, to commit suicide, Pilgrim is admitted to the Burghölzi Psychiatric Clinic in Zurich where he begins a battle of psyche and soul with Carl Jung, self-professed mystical scientist of the unconscious and slave to his own sexual appetites. Poring over Pilgrim's journals in his quest to penetrate his patient's armour of silence, Jung is both confounded and shaken by the extraordinary revelations of other existences. Populated by a fascinating parade of historical and mythical characters, Pilgrim is a richly-layered story of a man's search for his own destiny. Instantly engaging, superbly crafted, breathtaking in scope and brilliantly imagined, Pilgrim is Timothy Findley's masterwork.
