has been given the assignment to write an autobiography for English class.
He tells the story of his life in a collage of voices. He has grown
up in a house built of voices. His grandmother reading to him, his
grandfather's letters to the editor, his mother's poetry. These are
always around. He adds one more sound. The sound of his long
gone father. Rob's father is a radio DJ somewhere. He left
before Rob was born. And now Rob spends more and more time listening
to far-off radio stations in search of Lenny. It started when he
was a little kid and as the years have gone by, the radio equipment has
gotten more and more sophisticated and the signals more remote. How
many times can Rob hit the seek button on the radio and still keep up the
hope of finding his father?
