This brilliantly written and deftly read story introduces Louis Little, a 13-year-old English boy spending the summer in Paris while his mother translates a novel written by a Russian immigrant. Tremain masterfully creates the persona of an extremely bright boy as he observes and learns from the world around him, including a special African maid and various French and Russian acquaintances who enliven the novel. Narrator West both enhances the well-drawn characters and the first-person narration. Because of West's fine ability, the listener enters the very character of a special, yet typical, late-twentieth-century boy. This is an excellent choice for teens and adults. S.G.B.
