Millhauser's erotic fairy tale is quirky and challenging. But under the production and reading talents of Stefan Rudnicki, it's brought to life like the magical mannequin and stuffed dolls that are part of the tale. Rudnicki makes effective use of instrumental and vocal accompaniment as he reads the odd assortment of vignettes that are more like disconnected scraps of beat-poetry than chapters in a novel. His deep, clear, resonant voice hypnotically tells the story of an enchanted midsummer night when the moon brings a restless awakening upon the Connecticut townspeople--along with the appearance of a moon goddess, a goat-hoofed piper, and some disconcerting sexual episodes involving teenagers.
