Perhaps the best way to introduce this
novel—which on my third reading of it
astounds me even more than the first—is
to tell of my first encounter with it. While
I was teaching at Loyola in 1976 I began
to get telephone calls from a lady
unknown to me. What she proposed was
preposterous. It was not that she had
written a couple of chapters of a novel and
wanted to get into my class. It was that
her son, who was dead, had written an
entire novel during the early sixties, a big
novel, and she wanted me to read it. Why
would I want to do that? I asked her.
Because it is a great novel, she said.
Over the years I have become very good
at getting out of things I don’t want to do.
And if ever there was something I didn’t want
to do, this was surely it: to deal with the
mother of a dead novelist and, worst of all,
to have to read a 0manuscript that she said
was great, and that, as it turned out, was a
badly smeared, scarcely readable carbon.
