Abstract:

A special two-in-one edition of National Book Award winner Walker Percy & rsquo;s classic novel The Last Gentleman and its sequel, The Second Coming In The Last Gentleman, Will Barrett has never felt at peace. After moving from his native South to New York City, Will & rsquo;s most meaningful human connections come through the lens of a telescope in Central Park, from which he views the comings and goings of the eccentric Vaught family. But Will & rsquo;s days as a spectator end when he meets the Vaught patriarch and accepts a job in the Mississippi Delta as caretaker for the family & rsquo;s ailing son, Jamie. Once there, he is confronted not only by his personal demons, but also his growing love for Jamie & rsquo;s sister, Kitty, and a deepening relationship with the Vaught family that will teach him the true meaning of home. And in The Second Coming, now in his late forties, Will Barrett lives a life other men only dream of. Wealthy from a successful career on Wall Street and from the inheritance of his deceased wife & rsquo;s estate, Will is universally admired at the club where he spends his days golfing in the North Carolina sun. But everything begins to unravel when, without warning, Will & rsquo;s golf shots begin landing in the rough, and he is struck with bouts of losing his balance and falling over. Just when Will appears doomed to share the fate of his father & mdash;whose suicide has haunted him his whole life & mdash;a mental hospital escapee named Allison might prove to be the only one who can save him.
