Abstract:

A profound examination of the mysteries of memory and perception from one of the twentieth century & rsquo;s most admired literary artists The train races from New York to Boston. For Andrew Cather, it is much too fast. He will return home three days early, and he is both terrified and intrigued by what he may find there. He pictures himself unlocking the door to his quiet Cambridge house, padding silently through its darkened halls, and finally discovering the thing he both fears and yearns to see: his wife in the arms of another man. Cather knows that what he finds in Cambridge may destroy his life, yet finally set him free. A masterful portrait of an average man at the edge of a shocking precipice, Great Circle is a triumph of psychological realism. One of Sigmund Freud & rsquo;s favorite novels, it is a probing exploration of the secrets of consciousness.
