by Bruce Kellner ’55
The impact of the past on the present dominates this novel, as Kellner explores
the erratic, mysterious power of memory, simultaneously faithful and unreliable. “Memory is our sixth sense,” one character observes. “Is the fading of the other ones as
we grow older the reason why memories of the past grow stronger?” The book is set on a midwestern farm
in the last century, where a boy is forced to come of age in
a colorful family of dysfunctional women.
