    One thought on “The Return”

    1. This novel refuses to take short cuts when confronting the complexities surrounding the issues of intimate violence or violence amongst intimates , without being apologetic or subservient to either gender based rhetoric A hard task Irrespective of the main plot, the characters intermingling with the protagonists along the way are charming and potential protagonists in the making It is often in the background that one finds the gem in Lee Olds novels Here is my favourite the tramp She was petrifi [...]

    2. I think what Olds does is pay witness to the marginal, even though as I write that it sounds kind of hollow I mean he attends to those moments of estrangement that are felt when we truly encounter ourselves and try to act in a good and right manner on the basis of what we see I think in this novel we see the tender side of Olds But this is a writer who takes no prisoners, he demands that we pay witness to this world ultimately I want to know why.

    3. Lee Olds is a wordsmith second to none This novel is perfectly crafted Gripping and insightful, coarse and tender this is a novel that will stand the test of time A true classic.
