An early novel by Tom Wicker, long-time columnist for The New York Times. What interested me was to see how much Wicker went on to learn about writing after he published this. It's not bad, but it reminded me of a painting in which everything is detailed and in focus. Just like the eye needs to be guided into an image by effective use of foregrounding, shadow, mistiness, etc., so the mind of a reader. Not everything needs to be described in detail, even if the author is skilled enough to do it.
