Product description

From the Author

This book is my version of the Great American Novel. The end result may not necessarily be the great American novel, but it is certainly a large American novel. It is a sprawling 600-plus-page epic of life in the early 1980s, centered around the oddly chaste love affair between Billy McEwan and Tammi Honig.

I might add that at least one of the major characters is Canadian, so this does qualify as a Great North American Novel.

One of my former teachers once said I was heavily influenced by Proust, even though I have only read a tiny bit of Proust's work. I have read a lot of Kerouac and Nabokov, so I guess that's where the Proust influence came in. A more direct influence was Bret Easton Ellis. I read "Less Than Zero" when it came out, which was two decades ago, and I said "I can do better than that!" And although his book is not bad, and stands the test of time, in the end mine turned out to be better. So there!

About the Author

Timothy Horrigan was born in Indiana in 1956, and was educated at the Northfield Mount Hermon School, the University of Southern California and (not too surprisingly, given the setting of this book) Columbia University. In the 1970s and 1980s, some of his poems were published in various small magazines, but his fiction had to wait till the 21st century to be published.
