Twenty-three narrative voices, each ``distinctive and accurate in tone and idiom,'' kaleidoscopically limn the intense life of Eton Arthur Boone, a fictional Greenwich village comic and cult figure. ``A tour de force,'' said PW. ``Readers will be mesmerized by this portrait of a man who reflects both the pop culture of the '60s and '70s and the angst of an artistic genius.''
