Fiction • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1994

Placed in a Copenhagen boarding school to be integrated into "normal" society, the truant orphan, Peter, allies himself with fellow outsiders. With understated precision George Guidall conveys the bleak landscape of these children's lives in the rich--if grim--details of the narrative. The story is depressing, relieved somewhat by poetical and philosophical "riffs" on the nature of time. Stay with it--the delivery is compelling, and the denouement affirming.
