NPR Summary

In this lush interplanetary tale, an immortal priest flouts the conventions of his matriarchal society by choosing a name for his child. This act initiates chaos that splits the boy in two, unleashing a Jekyll-and-Hyde child upon the universe. Named T-Mo by his mother and Odysseus by his father, the story spans the boy's lifetime — from his early years with his mother Silhouette on the planet Grovea to his travels to Earth.
