Synopsis: Beginning with a scandalous murder-suicide in 1908, a novel by the author of Ironweed moves back and forth between the 1880s and 1912, following the lives and fates of playwright Edward Daugherty, his wife Katrina, and their lovers. Read by William Kennedy. Simultaneous.
Review: Kennedy has won a large and loyal following, but you don't have to be a dyed-in-the-wool Kennedy fan to enjoy this latest addition to the famous Albany cycle of novels -- from whence come the likes of Ironweed, his Pulitzer Prize and National Book Critics Circle Award winner. The Flaming Corsage is a return to the same place, different time. Bouncing back and forth from 1884 to 1912, Kennedy's story is of wealth and class in Albany; his prose is at once moodily atmospheric and refreshingly clear -- an utter pleasure to read. The book is a historical novel, yet feels perfectly modern, and perfectly entertaining.
