The Moviegoer; Walker Percy

The Moviegoer The Moviegoer by Walker Percy

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is so very much a product of its time (1961, New Orleans) - the attitudes, the actions, the characters are clearly from another era, one we've grown past in many ways.

The disappointment of the book is based on the title. I expected more movie in a book about a movie goer (although the dialogue always has that stilted movie-tone sound to it); instead you get a Lost Soul and his upper class New Orleans family, slightly decaying but still solid.
