really liked it
Read in May, 2008

Strong sense of time period and social class evoked in this piece, a coming of age story of an upper class youth from the Chicago suburbs trying to make sense of a world that includes debutante parties, a hip jazz club, and a summer job as an errand boy for a sensational newspaper. The language is rich, the tone something of a cross between Catcher in the Rye and a sumptuous Douglas Sirk film.
