C1977: After reading this book and the previous one, I was surprised to find out that Shaw self-exiled himself to Europe when the States went through the McCarthy period. He died in May 1984 and had some 72 works to his name. I remember enjoying the book but I had the benefit of watching the TV adaptation of Rich Man, Poor Man which had given some life to some of the characters and incidents in the book. FCN: Wesley, Gretchen, Billy, Tom Jordache.
