Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

gives us George Mecklin, a restless, soft-spoken teacher at a private school in Manhattan. Depressed by his life of vague moral purpose, George discovers a local adolescent named Ernest breaking into his house. Rather than hand the boy over to the police, as his nagging wife insists, George instead decides to tutor him. His life consequently implodes. Filled with vividly acid portrayals of American life in the 1960s, prescient explorations of suburban anomie, and a riotously disturbing cast of supporting characters, is a classic American novel--further reminder of Paula Fox's astonishing literary gifts.

Synopsis:

Paula Fox's stunning first novel--available for the first time since its initial publication in 1967.
