Abstract:

"Born in a small Midwestern town at the turn of the century, Alden Dennis Weer at the age of eight became the ward of his lively, headstrong aunt, Olivia. When she married Julius Smart- one of her many suitors and an enterprising businessman who opened an orange-drink factory- Alden's security and future were assured. The sparse telling of Alden's life is but the skeleton on which hangs the real flesh of the novel, the man's inner life: his physical, social, and moral blossomings; his relationships; his understanding of the world and his own place in it." -- dust jacket.
