A powerful cocktail of voices and idioms put together in an outrageously brilliant exuberance of language, with sentences that leave you shaking your head in chuckling stupefaction, as in a Charlie Parker solo. Despite the playfulness of language and irreverence, the searing passion for creativity and form burns against the masterfully described social frame of wealthy, elite superficiality, and radiates through, overriding the somewhat overburdened erudition. The only caveat is that the listener wishes to pause and revisit, retrace and rediscover the magic of a passage that is rendered fleeting without the comfort of the paper copy to fixate one's eyes on -- a recurring feature in this masterpiece.
