Rave Review for Norris's LOOKING FOR THE SUMMER
Friday, July 19, 2002  2:03:00 AM

by Robert W. Norris



Reviews
In a recent review, Bob Wake of CultureVulture.net compared Robert W. Norris's novel "Looking for the Summer" to Somerset Maugham's "The Razor's Edge" and Jack Kerouac's "The Dharma Bums." Wake wrote:

"Robert W. Norris's 'Looking for the Summer' is a graceful autobiographical novel that breathes fresh life into a perennial genre: the spiritual 'bildungsroman.' The theme of a questing expatriate who renounces Western materialism in favor of an exotic pilgrimage to the East will be familiar to anyone who has fallen under the spell of W. Somerset Maugham's 'The Razor's Edge' or Jack Kerouac's 'The Dharma Bums'....

"Although published prior to the events of 9/11, it is impossible to pick up Norris's novel without a heightened interest in its vividly depicted locales in a part of the world where our attentions are now so intensely focused. Several fascinating chapters are devoted to [the protagonist's] stay in Afghanistan. Written with a novelist's eye for characterization and a reporter's skill for observation, 'Looking for the Summer' is the kind of small press gem that is often overlooked but is well worth seeking out."
