With perfect pitch and a rare empathy, Morton is equally adept at portraying the life of the mind and how it plays out in the world, brilliantly tracing the border between honor and violation. Here Morton tells his strongest story yet--a story about love, friendship, literary treachery, and what everyone owes to the past.
