The habitat of Richard Needham shifts as effortlessly as his identity: it will surprise no one to discover him in the fabled landscape from which all his fairy tales have grown. The garden of Needham is primordial, enchanted, perilous. That fatal apple has been eaten, it seems, by Eve but not yet by Adam; hunted little men run nervously in packs or, if they assume an air of braggadocio and lechery, dissolve into tears at the crucial moment. In the face of such reluctance, women of all ages search with eternal hope fo rthe Sirens' song while they chivvy any redeemable man up that impossible hierarchy toward first-class existence.
And in this jungle of his making, where is Needham, masterful arch-creator? Punster, sage, crusader, he has eaten more than one apple and appears to scan society from a look-out post in the tree of life itself.
