KIRKUS REVIEW

.... and ""wanting to go where it is"" is Mike Logan, 21, out of the Army and back in the circle of intimates- Gene and Baby and Dog- who share his special world of progressive music and are way up, way down, or way out on drugs. His father, Sam, tries to show him that it isn't the music-but the places it's played in and the people it's played with that kills a good musician: ""He dies young- or he dies inside"". A brief affair with Jess, who has not long to live, is anything but an anchorage. Still, the ""original lost chord"", he heads on to New York- with Dog- to play and to slip into the hazy half-world of addiction.... A first novel, and the Avery-Hopwood award winner, this is sad, searching, subdued; the feeling is there- rather than the frenzy- and the words that have been set to the ""new music"" seem fitting and true.
