Amidst all of the confused emotions at play in the late 60's US, related Vietnam and what that meant for our country's future standing in the world and our discomfort with it... is Lloyd. He is facing his own future, no less dramatic nor less significant than America's: the draft, leaving the safe confines of college, striking out on a less certain path as a writer, losing the love of his life yet not sure how or why, possibly fathering a child... Perhaps he is a microcosmic avatar of what thousands of college age men were going through at the time... navigating the transition from boy to man, clumsily, confidently; not able to make the right choices at the right time but eventually, as Lloyd does, get a sense for how to move forward through life as a man.
I enjoyed the book. Fisher has a command of describing scenes and giving, even supporting characters, dimensions and depth that encouraged me to read further. I wanted to get to know these characters. I look forward to Fisher's next effort.
