A real story instead of instructions for the green movement and all the ills of the world
I loved The Persimmon Tree. I will give it another try due to my first read
He is magical performer. I will seek out his performances in the future
It was the unsatisfactory conclusion of the Persimmon Tree. I was thoroughly educated with the green movements history in Australia, old growth timber, the need to care for frogs, statistics of rape, Yakuza's role in Japanese society, Women's right movement. Mistreatment of American Blacks, and indigenous populations in the south pacific, Australia and Japanese WWII POWs. The inherent horrors of big business with their plunders of the environment and rational for civil disobedience.
Mr. Bower preformed it superbly though.
Nicholas Ducan was strong independent character in the Persimmon Tree. In Fishing for Stars he was an emasculated, "purse holding" character spending his time placating two women. With all the Soap Box preaching, it was hard to get through this one.
The story of Baby Love was very good but could have been great. I know I will never listen to it more than once. There narriators vocalization of the heroin was so weak. It reminded me of the "Kung Foo" 70s TV show. I could over look it once, not again.
