Val is born. Within minutes, he learns part of the entire history of the world. By then, having finished college, he is faced with the task of actually living

It's not quite the coconut he was taught, what with all the twisted Buddhists, sexually-amorphous mates and fright- eningly friendly Nazis. But Val's a survivor, and like most good people, he'll endure. Unless he goes insane

"..[a].. sometimes disturbing, look at the world, both past and present, told through the simple tale of a young man's coming of age

The verbal dexterity that Belber displays and the flights of fancy in which he engages are truly macabre" - American Theater Web
