SF novel.

''US writer (1908-1989) who also taught. Her career as a playwright began early, with Three Cornered Moon (1933), which was later filmed, but she began publishing sf only in 1963, with ''The Short and Happy Death of George Frumkin'' for FSF. Her fine sf novel THE REVOLVING BOY (1966) strikingly tells the story of a child sensitive from his unique birth in free fall to signals, possibly intelligent in origin, from beyond the Solar System. He reveals his sensitivity by being forced to adjust himself -- revolving balletically -- so that his body is aligned in the direction from which the signals come'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of Science Fiction).
