"Jim Kennoway is an alcoholic who has holed up in his family's Maine summer home to get away from everyone.  With flashbacks to his earlier years in World War II and his work in the orithology departement at the Museum of Natural History, his life is slowly revealed.  An intriguing character sketch of a hardened man, how he became that way, and the young women who might break through his thickened skin."
