Synopsis

The two sharply-rendered short novels of New York / Siena rush with wit and verve to provide two period takes on American ways of "growing up." In The Man Who Owned New York, fledgling cleric "Dick Rover" Stackpole commits a gaudy crime to secure a farmer's claim to his parish's property. Springtime in Siena follows a young academic leading a semester-abroad student group to Tuscany in 1974 who coldly modifies his own voracious behavior.

Stackpole’s story is told with antiquated language, which can feel contrived at times, even as the author fixes Stackpole firmly in time by using flowing sentence structures common in bygone novels, where women are ladies and anger comes off as a devastating betrayal.
