Clancy Sigal's Going Away: A Report, a Memoir PDF

By Clancy Sigal

National e-book Award Finalist: This autobiographical road-trip novel exploring existence and politics within the Fifties turned “an underground bestseller” (The Village Voice). 

The 12 months is 1956, and a blacklisted Hollywood agent units off on a cross-country experience from la to manhattan urban. alongside the way—stopping at bars, all-night eating places, and fuel stations—the twenty-nine-year-old narrator, right now egotistical and compassionate, barrels around the “blue highways” to satisfy, struggle with, love, and hate previous comrades and girlfriends, accumulating their tales and reflecting on his personal existence experiences.

pushed by way of probing stream-of-consciousness prose and brutally sincere self-analysis, Going Away is a sprawling autobiographical trip right into a kaleidoscope of yankee mindsets; most importantly, that of its radical narrator. filled with acute social and political observations, this pressing novel captures the spirit of its instances, so remarkably like that of today.

An odyssey within the spirit of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, Going Away is “a novel of significant significance. There hasn’t been something love it because TheGrapes of Wrath” (San Francisco Chronicle).
