"Shambry’s Booster, a former science prodigy who’s just emerged from a twenty year prison sentence for murder, has an otherworldly quality. He moves and speaks like someone out of step with the rhythms around him, and yet in possession of true gentleness and dignity. When his father bemoans his prospects as an ex-felon, one feels for him, not because he seeks pity, but because one senses so much goodness and fragility within him."
