(2 Ratings)
Novel: Reissue. This is the eightieth anniversary reprint of the classic novel of the University of Virginia, and of old Charlottesville, Virginia, not available since 1928. A young... More > cocktail-swilling poet-aesthete; wending his way through UVA’s parties, secret-societies, academic and administrative pitfalls. A loveable rogue anti-hero for our time and his, for all time. A sensitive and antic novel of time and place, written to a tone, texture, and quality to allow it to compare favourably to any of the bildungs-romans of the Jazz-Age... but with a distinctly Virginian flavour. A Southern Gatsby (1925), an American Decline and Fall (1928), a landlocked The Rock Pool (1936), a more survivable Beneath the Wheel (1906), a small-town Sinister Street (1914). Boojum! falls solidly in the genre of comic-tragic bohemian drop-out masterpieces, and deserves to assume its place amongst them... here’s hoping this re-issue may help it to do so.

“The sound of his voice made him wish he had not spoken at all; it seemed so small. It couldn’t possibly be heard, or if heard, would never be heeded. “I serve You, “ he said... More > softly, and dropped his offering into the pit.” Grandfather, expelled from his native land as a young man and facing death from exposure, is rescued by beings of the sky and transported to a world of strange beasts, powerful women, violent men, and telepathic 'demons'.

A young werewolf child has been kidnapped, perhaps even slaughtered, and all the witches’ cats have been horribly mutilated in a barbaric attack that can signify only one thing: the mongrels are uprising and no one is safe, especially Makayla, Jack’s mongrel girlfriend.< Less
