Like the measured, punctuated musical silences its title alludes to, this book vibrates with meaning and emotion. Because Stop-time is a memoir of boyhood and adolescence, it deals with family conflict, friendship and love, the paralysis of terror, pride in new powers -- all the common places of reminiscence. But this is the story of a young life told with such freedom and skill, peopled by characters so rich, that it transcends conventional categories and makes an exhilarating claim for greatness.

This is the authors first book.
