Summary
MODERN & CONTEMPORARY FICTION (POST C 1945). A wonderful, beauty-haunted piece of work.Tarkington s voice in his hard-to-put-down debut novel has a timeless feel to its cadences, the same bittersweet music we hear in the storytelling of the best of our Southern writers. Bob Shacochis, author of "The Woman Who Lost Her Soul" Eight-year-old Rocky worships his older brother Paul--sixteen and full of rebel cool, smoking cigarettes, driving around in his Nova blasting Neil Young--until the day Paul, in an act of vengeance against their father, picks Rocky up from school and nearly leaves him for dead in the woods. Paul then runs off with his beautiful, fragile girlfriend, never to be heard from again. Seven years later Rocky is a teenager himself. Although he s never forgotten the abandonment of his boyhood hero, he s now getting over it, with the help of the wealthy neighbors daughter, ten years his senior, who has taken him as her lover
