When Tony Conti's former lover, Mary Lynn Kagan, comes back into his life after a long absence, he is soon immersed in the hunt for her husband's killers. Tony's friends, Roscoe and Linda, join Tony and Mary Lynn in their quest as they also search for their holy grail-the missing papers of Nikola Tesla, the world-renowned inventor, physicist, and engineer.
The trail of the killers and the missing papers takes the friends from the United States to Europe, where they encounter a nationalist group identified only by the initials SCNF. The group kidnaps Roscoe and demands the Tesla papers as a ransom. There is a hidden feature of the papers unknown to Tony that could put a powerful new weapon into the hands of the SCNF.
Also included is a lengthy excerpt from Tony's diaries, which fleshes out the portrait of this talented intellectual coming of age in the 1960s. Watch Tony develop strategies for sexual survival as he blossoms into the scholar who will eventually write The Thug Theory of History.
Bring Me the Brain of Nikola Tesla explores the boundaries of sex, self, and consciousness as author Sal Restivo interweaves linear narrative with dreams, memories, and diary entries from different time periods to create a mesmerizing tale.
