    Olivier, an improvisation on the life of Alexis de Tocqueville, is the traumatized child of aristocratic survivors of the French Revolution. Parrot is the motherless son of an itinerant English printer. Born on different sides of history, their lives will be joined by an enigmatic one-armed marquis.

    If you could sum up Parrot and Olivier in America in three words, what would they be?

    Deeply delightfully intelligent


    Which character – as performed by Humphrey Bower – was your favorite?

    Parrot, but Olivier was great too.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't want this book to end. The paradox of democracy and the American character has matured but remains unchanged. Fascinating and the writing is absolutely marvelous.
