20 percent discount" (102). In a word, soul-sucking. The would-be Orpheus then gets further acquainted with himself as a "plunker" (103). Frustration is again epiphany's price. No miracle, he-- Madden must be witness to the miracle--this in the person of Paul McCartney. Sir Paul made the world "a better place" when, seemingly inspired, he "[strung] up an upside-down Rosetti Solid 7 with piano wire" (10405). (There are additional examples of pop music moving the soul, and they're quite a bit of fun to read.) The point is, Madden testifies of the spirit having worked in all kinds of ways. Mormons think along those lines. They're like this. One more feature of the writing deserves brief comment: Madden's style is highly allusive. It seems the rare page that doesn't have an excerpt. More than half the chapters begin with excerpts. The fourth chapter has twenty-three hefty ones in just thirty-one pages. Add to the excerpts the smallish inset illustrations, numbering forty-eight in total, and we have here more of a commonplace book than a sustained and smooth exposition. Is this scrapbook style something lately out of our creative writing departments? If so, it's a revival of a popular subgenre
