Along his path he finds himself having to negotiate love, desire and the need to face up to his own past and responsibilities.

Buying this book was an excellent transaction. The book is in great shape and was delivered well packaged. The seller went above and beyond the call of duty to get the book to me. Our substitute postman who was working while our regular postman was on vacation sent the book back even though it was properly and clearly addressed. The seller emailed me that he was mailing it again and this time it ran the gauntlet of ineptitude and we received it. I really appreciate their caring and persistence. This is not an easy book to find. Thank you a thousand times for +making the extra effort to get the book to me.
