More About the Author

Walker Percy (1916-1990) was one of the most prominent American writers of the twentieth century. Born in Birmingham, Alabama, he was the oldest of three brothers in an established Southern family that contained both a Civil War hero and a U.S. senator. Acclaimed for his poetic style and moving depictions of the alienation of modern American culture, Percy was the bestselling author of six fiction titles--including the classic novel The Moviegoer (1961), winner of the National Book Award--and fifteen works of nonfiction. In 2005, Time magazine named The Moviegoer one of the best English-language books published since 1923.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It isn't that MORE CONVERSATIONS WITH WALKER PERCY isn't a helpful book in learning more about this great writer. It is. The problem is that the interviews are very repetitive. Percy says the same thing over and over again. He is passionate, for instance, that the scientific method cannot explain man. He also talks openly about his Christian faith and Catholic convictions and his dismay at modernization of the Faith. Obviously, this reinforces what he is about as a writer, but the book would have been better with some more variety.
