'The Sophomore by means of Barry Spacks is that infrequent beast: a shrewdpermanent, subtle novel that's very, very humorous. it truly is like an American fortunate Jim - straight away hilarious, smart and extremely actual. a whole delight.' William Boyd

Harry Zissel is 22 years outdated, a faculty sophomore who plans to be a huge author. He simply can not seem to end something. Then his female friend Miriam publicizes she's pregnant. Harry fears he will prove a married wage-slave, similar to his outdated blood brother Arthur Thompson. Leaving his house to get breakfast, Harry comes to a decision as an alternative to hit the line. Can he dwell the yankee dream of 'starting afresh'? Or does he have to greenback up, straighten out, do a little paintings for a change...? The query isn't really for him by myself in Barry Spacks' outstanding debut novel from 1968, reissued right here with a brand new introductory Q&A with the author.

'No synopsis can do justice to Spacks's technical ability and comedian inventiveness.' Saturday Review
