Editorial Reviews. Review. "Waking Wolfe is a tightly written story with engaging characters andfast-moving events you've got yourself a thriller" ~ Susan Hasler. Scott Wolfe is a talented computer and electronics security specialist and an avid rock climber. He's a pretty typical twenty-something; he likes to party, he's bad.
Nostalgia was Wolfe's major theme, and that it could become a wearisome refrain is undeniable. When he was finished with a manuscript, movers had to be hired to cart it away. But he had one obsessive need: to get everytning that had ever happened to him into his work.
This autobiographical impulse dominated all other considerations. However unsparing, Wolfe's portrait of his family endowed them with a heroic proportion. Everything about the Gants was gargantuan; like Wolfe himself, who stood 6 feet 7, they towered above the world.
The crucial scene in the novel is the death of Ben. Incapable of conquering their discordant natures, they struggle in the net of familial rage and affection until it is too late:.
And as they looked and saw his bright eyes already blurred with death, and saw the feeble beating flutter of his poor thin breast, the strange ponder, the dark rich miracle of his life surged over them its enormous loveliness. Charles Picard. Ryszard Tokarczuk. Dave Peters.
