Last and unfinished work of the author, which deals with a man who wanted to be recognized as an artist, a musician, and a composer of at least one opera. Beda Foltyn is described in 14 chapters by those who knew him. He comes across as a self-centered and self-indulgent individual who is somewhat of a despicable poseur--a phony. Nonetheless, the book ends "like a fugue to the glory of God's creation and of man's true art."
