David Hochmeyer is nearly a giant at almost 7 ft. and his life contains giants in sports, dance, music, cooking, architecture and nature. Central to his life is the unsolved murder of his parents, which he witnessed as a teen, and many unresolved relationships with the central characters in his life. The ending will annoy those who like pat answers, but I guffawed with delight.
