All The King's Men
Willie Stark, Jack Burden, Catherine
Written by a poet laureate and most of the novel's prose lives up to that brilliance. But some of the philosophical meandering dulls the full effect of Huey Long's legacy.
To get there you follow Highway 58, going northeast out of the city, and it is a good highway and new.
We shall come back, no doubt, to walk down the Row and watch young people on the tennis courts by the clump of mimosas and walk down the beach by the bay, where the diving floats lift gently in the sun, and on out to the pine grove, where the needles thick on the ground will deaden the footfall so that we shall move among the trees as soundlessly as smoke. But that will be a long time from now, and soon now we shall go out of the house and go into the convulsion of the world, out of history into history and the awful responsibility of Time.
