No one writes of boyhood better than Hawley, and no one illuminates the moral choices behind every action from childhood on. Hawley has an uncanny ability to recover what has been lost to most of us, our inner lives as children, and return it to us in words that move and stir us.
In fact, there is hardly a Big, Troubling Question that Richard Hawley does not pose, either directly or indirectly, in this intricate, ambitious new book.
The acclaimed author of The Headmaster's Papers (himself until recently Headmaster of a boy's school) has gone eastern on us in this, his most recent novel--and the result is irresistibly thought-provoking and absolutely engrossing.
