Billy Mannville, raised by his grandfather in upstate New York, knows he'll become a writer. Upon graduation, he chooses a college in Sante Fe with no intention of attending it, but instead uses it as an excuse to travel there on his motorcycle to find his birth mother. Tom Stechschulte offers a simple and forthright performance as the determined but impressionable young man. His insight into Billy's vulnerability and curiosity concocts the perfect roadmap to experience adventure, disappointment, and hope. The narration piques the listener's imagination as Stechschulte depicts colorful and seedy characters, the beauty of the Southwest, and the emotions of a young man in love. B.J.P.
