A Popular Novel of Great Impact

by ghmus7 on Dec 3, 2007

Walker Percey is one of our Americas' finest authors. In this work, he uses the 'popular novel' genre to most effectivley tell the tale of a plot to control intelligence by introducing chemicals in the water of a local city. Although the novel is entertaining, especially in it's lovingly drawn southern charachters and places, the author's message of the value of human life and our society's attitudes is subtle but effective. Percy is a poetic novelist of rare talent and an American treasure. Highly Recommended
