Set in New York's vanished publishing world of the 1960s, this witty novel poses the question: Can an idealistic young man from a rich Texan oil family make his mark as a successful avant-garde publisher in New York and discover the meaning of being in love? Playfully serious or seriously playful, this is a novel full of wit and pleasure as it chronicles Grandin Farrell's pursuit of an unbeaten path in the publishing world. A mixed bag of writers, mentors, poets, academics and literature lovers sacrifice and devote themselves to his quixotic cause, except for one who secretly wants to sabotage it. A few fall in love, finding him elusively, irresistibly attractive. His authors depend upon him for survival. His staff regards him in awe, with the exception of principled Pandora, married to an idealistic Afghan journalist, who reserves judgment about his hidden character.Single-minded in pursuit of great works (and oblivious to his own hidden pursuit), as he travels to Europe, South America and Mexico, Grandin fumbles blindly in his love life, which propels him into ever more comic patterns, until he opens his heart to an implacable force that can undo him. Readers will find this riveting work profoundly clever and affecting. Embedded in this fascinating novel is the author's own hidden agenda that he urges the reader to decipher.
