Orage was a British man of letters who traveled little and sought effective blueprints for transforming Britains culture and economy. And for transforming himself: he long understood that society cannot change purposefully unless the individuals it comprises can change purposefully. But none whom he met seemed capable of providing such guidance until, in 1922, he met Gurdjieff.This book recounts an important part of what happened after the two men met, as seen by an American who found in Orage what Orage had found in Gurdjieff.

Several decades separate the events of this narrative from their telling. In keeping with the ethos of Orages New York study groups, the author has aimed to capture not every detail but the essence of what she and her friends experienced first-hand with Orage and Gurdjieff.Considerable and unique detail is in fact provided. Ms. Welch treats not only the relationship between Orage and Gurdjieff but also her experience of what and how Orage taught and what and how Gurdjieff taught.

She writes with a sensitive, penetrating, and practiced intelligence. Some scenes will be familiar to those who have read secondary literature on Orages time in New York- this text has been a well-used if not widely-read primary source. No secondary source, however, conveys as Ms. Welch does the sense of being present at the events recounted, or of being as engaged in those events.
