THE SECOND COMING
"I fall down from time to time and you are very good at hoisting. It would be pleasant to have you around to give me a hand," he said.
Lovely copy of the sequel to Percy's 1966 THE LAST GENTLEMAN, revisiting the character of Will Barrett in middle age and under great philosophic and psychologic strain. Critically well received, THE SECOND COMING was nominated for both a PEN/Faulkner award and a National Book Critics Circle award.
