The Children at the Gate Reviews
I'm not going to go into too much detail. This is the third novel of Edward Lewis Wallant's I have finished. I think he is one of my favorite writers. His novels, though short, are powerful and moving stories, told in an omniscient voice with great insight and feeling for being human. More people should read his work, which consists of; Human Season, The Pawnbroker, The Tenants of Moonbloom, and The Children at the Gate. It's unfortunate that he died at the age of 36. The greed inside me wants more of his words, but just as we have to accept with musicians or any other artist who dies young, the art that was offered before their demise is all we have. However, in most cases the artists never had the chance to grow tired of their crafts and water down their art into an uninspired habit.
Someone I knew once commented that the purer the person the uglier they looked. She was talking about a maharishi but could as well have been talking about this book.'Here's the mock up of the cover.''What the f- is that?''Well, you know, it's representative of what he's written.''But what is it? It looks like the face of a deformed young girl. Or maybe a young girl covered in blood. Oh wait - wait a minute - I see what it is - it's a picture of a statue of Christ.''Exactly.''Weird - it's just like the entire experience of reading the book by trying to understand that cover.''Exactly!''It's still the ugliest cover I've seen.'Summary : don't judge a book... well, you know the rest.
Another I read for my "Images of Christ in the novel". I really enjoyed this one!
A powerful and entertaining read. I've re-read it several times.
