"A curious, tender book, provocatively and intelligently imagined."

SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

Binx Bolling is s small-time stockbroker who lives quietly in suburban New Orleans, pursuing an interest in the movies, affairs with his secretaries, and living out his days. But soon he finds himself on a "search" for something more important, something that will measure and mark and hold his life forever against the passage of time. And one fateful Mardi Gras week, he finds it in a way, and with a woman, he would never have expected....

"A brilliant novel...Percy touches the rim of so many human mysteries."

HARPER'S

From the author of THE THANATOS SYNDROME.

Review:
This elegantly written account of a young man's search for signs of purpose in the universe is one of the great existential texts of the postwar era and is really funny besides. Binx Bolling, inveterate cinemaphile, contemplative rake and man of the periphery, tries hedonism and tries doing the right thing, but ultimately finds redemption (or at least the prospect of it) by taking a leap of faith and quite literally embracing what only seems irrational.
From the Back Cover:
"Mr. Percy is a brethtakingly brilliant writer." --The New York Times Book Review

"Clothed in originality, intelligence, and a fierce regard for man's fate. . . . Percy has a rare talent for making his people look and sound as though they were being seen and heard for the first time by anyone." --Time

"A brilliant novel. . . . Percy touches the rim of so many human mysteries." --Harper's
