UNTIL I FIND by Edgcumb Pinchon

An enchanting book, which defies analysis of its charm. Find it for yourself in the open fields, the woods, the moors, the gypsy camp fires, the sea -- for the writer has captured them all in this delightful story of a boyhood hemmed in by the strictures of a religious fanatic on one side, opened to imaginative escape by the gypsy heritage on the other. There's a ""fey"" quality to the book --a Robert Nathan quality -- and at the same time, that effortlessness of story-telling that is born not made in a writer. Don't pass it over -- and pick your customers for those who will appreciate its subtle quality.
