Mandala

ByHugh Taylor

A dizzying trip through the tangled, dysfunctional, and sometimes hilarious relationships amongst a group of 1980s college friends. Claus and Dede were the power couple at the prestigious Beaton Lowell College in the 1980s. Giovanni Corigliano is the totemic film professor, an icon of 1960s righteousness. Jan Fox, a Midwest dermatologist’s daughter who believes she win Corigliano’s love and Dede’s respect if she manages to convince Beaton Lowell to divest itself from South Africa. Adam Saperstein, a logorrheic savant whose political ruminations cast impotent stones at the politically correct orthodoxy of the day, desperately craves Corigliano’s esteem while he vents his bilious rage at his holier-than-thou teacher. Havelock Payne, is Corigliano’s great failure, the one who whored himself out in network television. Claus was killed while on a photo journalism assignment in Peru. Adam and Havelock have volunteered to fetch his body and bring it back to Dede for burial.
