Lopez weaves rigorous observations into a broad web of human meaning, often straining the limits of language. Such writing demands that the oral interpreter steer a narrow course between conviction and extravagance. Lopez is equal to the task. He delivers his own work effectively with no hint of self-indulgence. Listeners unfamiliar with Lopez’s special sensibility could hardly find a better introduction. Devotees will enjoy this visit with a friend. Good-quality recording with well-chosen bits of music between essays helps make this an attractive selection.
