This is a very atypical coming-of-age story about Josh, a freshman at Columbia; it becomes much more when Josh is introduced to Proust's writing. Stanley Ely's uncanny ability to take Proust's works and fine-tune Josh's story in such a fashion that they parallel modern life, intertwined, is simply genius, and it charts new territory into the worlds of coming-out stories and coming-of age tales -- not since 'Catcher in the Rye'.

Industry Reviews

In his third book, Stanley E. Ely honors the French master not so much by imitation as by himself calculating to the very decimal point the minute alterations of heart and mind by which a contemporary American adolescent begins the process of becoming mature. Honest, well-written and without exaggeration, this is a terrific novel for young people, straight or gay, and for those who want to re-experience that excitingly fraught time when every single moment and every possible action seemed likely to alter the entire universe.
