Ballantine Books. 1989. Paperback. Near Fine. The voices of various narrators produce a composite family portrait that ta kes the Copelands, a blue-collar North Carolina family, from the placid sum mer of 1956 to the Vietnam War years. "This is a mature novel in which Edge rton's subtle mastery of his craft is made increasingly clear," From Library Journal Despite their diversity, the Copelands are drawn together twice each year b y recurring rituals of family unitythe spring grave cleaning and the winter trip to visit Uncle Hawk in Florida. By skillfully using six different fir st-person narrators, Edgerton recounts the family exploits between 1956 and 1971 and provides significant glimpses of family history as far back as th e Civil War. The book's focus is on the family as an abiding unit, but a si ngle character who does stand out is Meredith. His mischief provides much o f the outrageous humor in early chapters, and his war injuries in Vietnam l ead to a painful but moving climax. Like Edgerton's two earlier novels ( Ra ney, LJ 4/1/85; Walking Across Egypt, LJ 3/15/87), this one should have wid e appeal.Albert E.

Details of the book
Floatplane Notebooks

Edgerton's first novel, Raney, went into six printings before becoming a smash paperback hit. His second, Walking Across Egypt, doubled the first's hardcover sales, set off a scramble for paperback rights, and launched the Book-of-the-Month Club's "Discovery" series. Now, there is The Floatplane Notebooks--a breakthrough novel that combines Edgerton's comic gift with his piercing insights into family ties.
