POE BALLANTINE READS FROM HIS NOVEL

Part of Whirlaway’s plot: Eddie Plum, who insists he’s been unjustifiably committed to a California psychiatric hospital, manages to escape. He holes up on a bluff above the Pacific Ocean owned by his wealthy but unsympathetic father. There he meets Sweets the telepathic dog, laments the loss of Sofia, his madhouse lover, and plays the horses at the Del Mar Racetrack. Eventually, he meets up with an old friend, Shelly Hubbard, a fellow horseplayer who tells him about his brother, Donny, dead at the age of eighteen from a tragic dive off a thirty-foot La Jolla sea cliff known as The Clam.
