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.
