An allegorical piece of fluff combining a yearning for transcendence with screwball comedy. After inheriting his grandfather's plantation and all the kooky relatives that come with it, a would-be poet falls in love with a girl no one else can see. Readers in search of realism and fully developed characters are advised to look elsewhere.
