“This humorous novel carries the reader along while the fly navigates between buildings and behind closed doors. Ever in danger of being stricken by deadly blows of hands or fly swatters, the fly is driven to achieve higher understanding of this most unusual breed of characters.
“The genius of this story is the profound insights into the human condition which are stated in beautiful simplicity. What we would learn about our species, if only we could be a fly on the wall!”
-- Hollis G. Boren, M.D.

Through their togetherness the fly learns. He observes them with others, but is most intrigued by the way they act alone.
