    One thought on “Meritocracy”

    1. A novel about Yale graduates hanging out during the summer of 1966 I m there This is a quietly devastating elegy to lost love, lost friends, and on a larger scale, a whole generation who lived under the shadow of Vietnam It is a precise, serious piece of work, with some non fiction thrown in George Bush and Timothy Leary both turn up and a bit of post modern conjecture, and some politics Despite that, I couldn t put it down well, much and found it pretty hypnotic and wrenching Will seek out the [...]

    2. I recommend this one to all my friends of a certain age.A love story In the time of the Vietnam War It is the end of 1966 and a small group of friends, recent Yale grads, gather in a Maine cottage to say goodbye to Harry He is joining the Army and may go to Vietnam Also present is Harry s bride, Sascha.Read this on one rainy afternoon.Lessons, memories, and lots of thoughts of times gone by And what might have been And what is.

    3. Because I read this book last in the quartet but it is actually first , I am reviewing them all as one big novel, which is an important work Lewis really talks, and if I were willing to pretend to be in school again I d draw up a timeline and graph for this set It takes place over 4 decades, the very same 4 where I had the most drama myself Read them all.

    4. Wonderful thoughtful novel tracing the circumstances intertwining the lives of a group of friends just graduated from Yale in 1966 from the vantage point of the narrator many years later The blend of memory and observation is completely satisfying.

    5. I really wanted to like this, because there are four books in the series But there were too many characters introduced all at once and the plot wasn t compelling enough for me to sort out who they were The writing was a bit dry, too.
