I’ll comment on the cover now and its contents later:
Us Conductors has quite possibly the most seductive dust jacket that I have ever come across. Its first rate illustrations capture the electricity of the theremin, the magnetism of an object of longing, and the luster of jazz age New York. Its summary, irresistibly inviting, proves to be as overreaching and unconvincing as the unrequited love found in its pages, a place where the provocative becomes lost in the very same ether that the protagonist was once a master of.
