Summary Wealthy suburbanite Ned Merrill loses everything and, by blocking out the last two or so years of years of his life, he deceives himself that he hasn't lost anything. His deception is revealed as he confronts former friends while swimming from one pool to another on his way to his old home. Some genuinely try to help him. As he proceeds, though, he runs into people who he mistreated in the past, and now speaks hostilely to him. He finally arrives at his old home, which is locked and empty.
