[This book] gets off to a promising start as a May-September couple on the Nebraska/Kansas border seek a handyman to deal with a clogged sink. "Plumbers do not come cheap," but the plumber lives (in what turns out to be nearly a ghost town) with a house-painter (who used to write) who works for three dollars an hour. Dahlberg, the painter, establishes himself with the young(er) wife, as the husband bemusedly watches their relationship develop and investigates the strange depopulation of Fork River (the not-quite abandoned town in which 700 people formerly lived, until a tornado or something swept a dozen and a large amount of dirt away, leaving a crater that is guarded by the plumber, the painter, and one other resident). --Stephen O. Murray at
The huge season, a novel by Wright Morris( Book )
26 editions published between 1954 and 2018 in English and German and held by 715 libraries worldwide
The Huge Season presents scenes from the life of Peter Foley, a middle-aged professor of classics. As one of his old friends testifies before McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee, Foley recalls their shared college years and the political education they received from their charismatic, wealthy, and doomed classmate Charles Lawrence. Through its juxtaposition of the two unsettled periods in Foley's otherwise staid life, Morris explores themes of collective response and personal responsibility, of calculated deference to authority and unexpected, private epiphanies, of public misconstruction and personal regret.
