Discovered in an antique store in Rome at the close of the last century, The Reincarnationist Papers offers a tantalizing glimpse into the Cogmonina, a secret society of people who enjoy total recall of their past lives and know by experience that they will incarnate into new bodies after their deaths.  Associating with one another in each successive life, some are agents of change working lifetime after lifetime toward their goals, some are catalysts to history, some pursue loves and friendships through the ages, while others are jaded, self indulgent hedonists, staggering from life to life.

Haunted by memories of two past lives, a troubled young man struggles to survive on LA’s seamy underbelly.  Recounted in three notebooks, Evan Michaels details the loneliness of his unique existence, his discovery of another like him and his eventual acceptance into the secret Cognomina.
