To Look and Pass

To Look and Pass

(1974)
A novel by

 
Jimmy, Dan, Livy and Beatrice grow up together in a small town at the turn of the century and forge a bond that lasts a lifetime. Life is placid and static in South Kenton with all "the orneriness and goodheartedness" common to villages, until an underlying abscess takes shape "• roiling with hate, suspicion, gossip, strange and twisted behavior, and eventually, brutal murder.

A sombre tale that creeps past, slowly defining and probing the root of the town's canker. Raised by his drunkard father in a two-room shack behind the smithy, Dan is marked as a victim from his earliest years. In him, the town has found a man "to crush and rend and hurl and spit upon." Quiet and solitary, all Dan longs to do is to look at life and watch it pass "• Ma guarda e passa.

"To look and pass" - is this "a bloodless and alien way to look at life,"or is it a way "to become a spectator among the gods who are themselves only spectators"? An intriguing and sobering read by an American author known for her provocative views.
