Conroy's tales of his work as a consular official in Vienna in the 1950's and 60's are entertaining, especially for fans of his writing. He tried to help the people he worked with, foreigners looking for visas and US citizens looking for help, but their quirks did not make it easy. His main interests remain his beloved pianos, his family, and food. This book by an underrated writer has the appeal of listening to an entertaining raconteur relate his polished stories.
