MCINERNEY, JAY:
RANSOM-RACK SIZE - Paperback

1987, ISBN: 9780394758039

ID: 80031085

Vintage. 1987. Paperback. Very Good. Hard on the heels of McInerney's celebrated first novel, Bright Lights, Big City ( LJ 10/1/84) comes this tragic tale of a young American in Kyoto. Ch ristopher Ransom, who hates his first name, has spent two years in a karate dojo trying to purge himself of his past and reclaim the spiritual bearing s he has lost. He finds, though, that ``You can run, but you can't hide.'' The TV shows the Japanese love most are those produced by his estranged fat her. He is haunted by the memory of Annette, in whose death he had some com plicity. And he's constantly hounded by crazed DeVito, a dishonorably disch arged ex-Marine with a samurai haircut, who longs to study kendo with real swords rather than bamboo staves. The comic vision that informed Bright Lig hts surfaces again here, primarily in Ransom's gaijin amusement with the na tives' imitation of anything American. Otherwise, this is a novel of high s eriousness. Highly recommended., Vintage, 1987

Since Christopher Ransom has been living in Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan, he has devoted himself to the study of karate. He doesn't just want to be good, he wants to be transformed. Two years after a lapse in his scruples drew him into crisis on the Khyber Pass, it is through karate that Ransom has regained some control, beginning to subsume his disillusionment and assuage his guilt. But soon he finds himself threatened by everything he thought he had left behind - a sequence of bizarre events whose consequences he cannot escape. contemporary,literary,literature and fiction Literature & Fiction, Vintage
