BOOK BIN BABY is about a man whose mother was so caught up in mundane matters that she disposed of him as a baby at birth in the book bin of a library. There he is nurtured by library members, who find the library is attracting new members because of their young resident. As he grows to manhood, he adopts as his world view the notion that a moral society is based on books, which are never wrong. The novel has a comic and political undercurrent, exploring why people in power think the way they do.
