(From the publisher):
Set in a summer camp in the Blue Ridge Mountains during the deceptively tranquil 1950s, The Tongues of Angels is a story of the twenty-one-year-old painting teacher, a superbly gifted boy, and their advance toward a startling fate. As the now-older man looks back on that summer, he reflects on the meanings he thought he had learned on the threshold of manhood from the perspective of full maturity.
