Central to this technique are the following considerations: firstly, that the technique is clearly a learned method, a way of training one's memory through exercise; secondly, that the choice of background, usually a building or room, is fundamental; and thirdly, that the rememberer should proceed around his building or room following the same route or order of recall each time.
The third rememberer is Krisztian, a childhood friend - and lover - who many years later concludes the memoir describing our post-modern hero's return to (and subsequent death in) Budapest, rendering a less passionate but somewhat unreliable report of what had gone on before.
