Paperback. 448 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.0in.This novel is not a single story but several lived by young boys and girls experiencing late adolescence in college then maturing through the crucible of war and its aftermath into adulthood. The very personal individual stories pivot about a house in Quandary, Pennsylvania that proves to be the cement that bonds them. Each has his or her highs and lows. You will at times grab your drawers with delight and at others hold your head. In the end you may wonder how you missed out on all of this, but chances are you did not, these things or things similar probably happened to you or may be happening today to all of us, and we need only to be reminded. The house at 313 Monroe Street is an unsettling element in a staid neighborhood. It has no connection with the university. It is conveniently located not far from campus, or downtown, or numerous bars and liquor stores. The boys who lived there, sometimes their girls, are typical lusty, irreverent All American children, on their own and making the most of it. Mason Clark, now an aging chairman of the board, recalls the goings on. For some reason, the others always thought of Mason, who was certainly no saint, as their Father Confessor. On him they unhesitatingly unloaded all of their dark secrets and dirty linen. At this late date, Mason, now feeling no compunction to remain silent longer, tells us every juicy detail, unembellished and unexpurgated. This item ships from multiple locations.
