(From the publisher):
The young man of the title, Leon Pracht, has left the theater to write. Contemplative, brooding, alienated from both society in general and those to whom he should be closes, Pracht moves numbly through a series of encounters, the precision of his observation of both the everyday and the fantastic underscored by his increasing detachment. His reflections, mediations, and reactions build a compelling portrait of contemporary society and of the individual struggling to find a place within—and without—it.
