When Orno Tarcher, open, frank, and studious, arrives at Columbia University from Cook's Grange, Mis-souri, the first person he stumbles across is the witty and almost clairvoyantly brilliant Marshall Emerson. Though poles apart in interests and temperament, the two are drawn together by an affectionate dependence on each other. Reader Gregory Gorton's voice glows with the surprise and fascination of Orno's first trip east to the big city. It is innocent and youthful, smiling at the Midwesterner's discovery of New York, grieving for his loss of down-home simplicity and perplexed by the clash of cultures he has to maneuver through. Ultimately he leaves the reader refreshed at Orno's ability to do it all and come through whole. P.E.F. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
