About the Author

Toby Olson lives in Philadelphia and North Truro, on Cape Cod, where he has done most of his writing over the past thirty-six years. He was born near Chicago in 1937, but left there at a young age. Through high school and his four years in the Navy as a surgical technician, he lived in California, Arizona, and Texas, and after finishing his BA in English and Philosophy at Occidental College in Los Angeles, he moved to New York City, where he received an MA from Long Island University. Olson taught at the Aspen Writers' Workshop, which he co- founded in the mid-sixties, and at Long Island University and The New School For Social Research before moving to Philadelphia and Temple University in 1975. Olson began writing poetry in the early sixties, but it was not until 1976 that his first novel, The Life of Jesus, was published (by New Directions). Seaview, for which he received the PEN/Faulkner Award for the most distinguished work of American fiction in 1983, followed, and since then he has published the novels The Woman Who Escaped From Shame, UTAH (Green Integer, 2003), Dorit in Lesbos, At Sea, WRITE LETTER TO BILLY (Coffee House Press, 2000), The Blond Box and The Bitter Half. Numerous books of Olson's poetry have been published, including CHANGING APPEARANCE (Membrane Press, 1975), We Are the Fire, Unfinished Building and his most recent title, Human Nature (New Directions, 2000). He is the author of the memoir THE OTHER WOMAN (Shearsman Books, 2015).

Coover teaches at Brown University. He also lives in Providence, RI.

Format: Hardcover
Toby Olson's novel is complex, and its details may seem tedious to undisciplined readers. However, for those willing to give their full attention to Olson's prose, you will be rewarded fascinating insights, rich characters, good humor, and most important the golf scene, which is easily the greatest description of the game of golf in American literature, and rises to the highest levels of prose American writers have written. Yes, the scene's that good - but you'll have to work for it. Oh yes - the book takes a funny turn toward the end, so stick with it. Overall, quite wonderful.
