In a sense, the exploits of young Ms. Sloan occur in a landscape no less fantastical than that of Oz or Wonderland. This is the uncanny milieo of Watergate, hippies, anarchic radicalism, and the insane serpant-eating-its-own-tail, Ouroboros, of the espionage world. Whorton's writing is unpredictable, and touch melancholy, and filled with deliciously wry, deadpan humor. A must-read for fans of Charles Portis's "True Grit."
