While little is made of Tony's religious upbringing, Butler uses a mural of Moses descending from Mt. Sinai with the Ten Commandments in the New York Public Library and a street preacher's harangue to bring questions of morals and judgment to Tony's mind. A love child himself, Tony holds conflicting notions about casual sexual contacts.
He becomes friends with an alcoholic Vietnam War vet, but a knife-wielding, smooth-talking hustler spells trouble. When Tony's father plasters Port Authority bus terminal with missing-person posters, we know some form of confrontation is in store, but the prolix first-person voice that Butler ( The Alleys of Eden ) assigns to narrator Tony fails to build momentum and never fully convinces.
