New York. 1961. Viking Press. 1st Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. hardcover. keywords: Literature America. inventory # 5579. FROM THE PUBLISHER - ‘Technically Matthiessen's neatest explication of character occurs in RADITZER. The figure who gives his name to the book is a passive-aggressive, physically weak and socially a parasite, yet able to strike through the mask of civilized respectability and mastery to reveal in those he victimizes a deep-seated guilt and bewildering remorse. The kinship Raditzer insists he shares with the respectable Navy men whose tenuous security he undermines conveys, as in RACE ROCK, Matthiessen's perception of the split between thought and action that manifests itself in the indecisiveness of American men. The tight narrative construction enforcing psychological parallels goes beyond the earlier novel, however, making it evident in RADITZER through the substance of style that the leading characters of the book amalgamate into a general type.’ -John M. Reilly. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory # 5579
