    Mosly does a masterful job in this book of actually placing the reader in the head of an older, man suffering from dementia. If I had read this book about 20 year ago, I probably not be able to relate to the problems of getting older. The story of how Ptolomey deals with his dementia, his love for his family and friends, his relation ship with women and in particular to Robyn (the young girl who becomes his fiend/ally) and how he deals with normal life's problems are all captured in Mosely's stylings. A very good book, not what you'd expect from Walter Mosely if your a Walter Mosely fan, but you'll appreciate the range of his writing even more.
