This disappointing book was one of the fastest reads of my life. The eight incidents chosen may include some of the most important in Francis' life, but I was disappointed on two counts. First, these episodes have little to do with fables. Secondly, Fo's handling of them does not get,, I believe, into the heart of Francis. Play may well be able to pierce to the heart of Francis' gifts, but I did not find Fo pushing into the depths of this great man or finding his gift of play. The book is set up for fast reading.
