A gently comic novel of self-fulfillment and culture-clash brings an Anglo-Irish theology teacher to Hawaii with his difficult elderly father in tow. Charles Armstrong, a Brit, reads expressively at a brisk clip. His characterizations are hit-and-miss. All his women are whiny, and his American accent laughable. On the other hand, he makes particularly memorable the ignorant Irish father and a self-important anthropologist completely devoid of common sense.
