This reading is not a condensation…it’s an introduction to some characters I admire and the gifts they bear. I think of this CD as a verbal mosaic in progress. Today I lay tile of varying shape --- the portions you will hear are gathered from different parts of the novel. In order to make this reading comprehensible, I have constructed a few bridges of prose---consider them mortar---between the tiles. They do not look or sound like tiles. But the mortar serves, humbly, to take us from one cluster of tiles to another array, related ---albeit distant.
