The Soul Thief (Vintage Contemporaries)by Charles Baxter
Synopses & Reviews
As a graduate student in upstate New York, Nathaniel Mason is drawn into a tangle of relationships with people who seem to hover just beyond his grasp. There's Theresa, alluring but elusive, and Jamie, who is fickle if not wholly unavailable. But Jerome Coolberg is the most mysterious and compelling. Not only cryptic about himself, he seems also to have appropriated parts of Nathaniel's past that Nathaniel cannot remember having told him about. In this extraordinary novel of mischief and menace, we see a young man's very self vanishing before his eyes.
The author of the National Book Award-nominated "The Feast of Love" returns with this ninth book. "The Soul Thief" concerns a mild-mannered graduate student, Nathaniel, who falls under the spell of an affected outsider.
