Abstract:

Matthieu Zela, a 250 year-old man who still looks like he's in his late 40s, leads an undying life--born in Paris in 1743, orphaned as a teenager, tragically fallen in and out of love, and destined to meet up with such notables as Pope Pius IX, Robespierre, Charlie Chaplin, Herbert Hoover, and the Rosenbergs--all while watching over each successive generation of his half-brother's descendents--all male, all with some variant of the name Thomas, and all sadly dying at a young age (but not before begetting an heir).
