John Gardner (1933-1982) was a major figure of 20th century letters. He is the author of a number of acclaimed novels including: The Sunlight Dialogues, October Light, and Grendel. He was also the author of several seminal works of non-fiction including The Art of Fiction and On Moral Fiction as well as volumes of poetry, and translations.From Library Journal:
This novel by the late Gardner made its debut in 1980. The title's meaning is twofold: Freddy is the central character in this tale of human relationships, but he also is the author of a novel whose story is juxtaposed against the lives of the book's characters. "The net result," said LJ 's reviewer, "is one of Gardner's most subtly moving and persuasive fictions on life and its conduct" ( LJ 3/1/80).
