“Ranging in time from early in the century until the 1920s, this unusual novel has as its dominating figure a big city – the Big Smoke – that moulds and is moulded by the lives of its people.  The chronicle of the young man who began life as “Jack Johnson’s boy” expounds the theme that we are all taking part in the life stories of many others.  Dramatic in conception, the novel thus presents an interwoven cross-section of individuals who touch and influence one another’s destinies for better or worse.”
