"A swift and elegiac little story about loving things you can't have anymore." Orphans gets Dead End Follies'd. And likes it. A lot.

It really does. And it really is a wonderful, and wonderfully appreciated, review. So, drinks, many, on us, whenever we finally meet Benoit. Cool? Cool. Excerpt. Yes.

"Our world is changing before our very eyes. The lives we've been taught to live are becoming obsolete. What we were taught was right is becoming wrong. What's what ORPHANS is about: our surrender of control over change. The world we created that has left us behind. ORPHANS is about the future, but the issues it raises are pertinent today. Ben Tanzer wrote a novel that is efficient and graceful, yet it is throbbing with political implications I'm not sure it quite understands. That, my friends, is a prime exemple of the alchemy that creates great literature. It is both deliberate and incidental."
