Thomas Mistler ein Mann in den frühen Sechzigern bekommt vom Arzt den schrecklichen Befund mitgeteilt Krebs Und daß er nur noch ein paar Wochen höchs. It s not easy for me to give a low rating to something by an able and critically respected novelist I had no trouble reading the book which was strong on Venice atmosphere echoes of Mann It is in the mold of Maruand and Auchincloss both of whom I read with affection yet leaves a bitter taste very unlike the work of the other twoAs you will know from other reviews the book is about a successful New York ad man in his early 60s born to wealth He has just been told he has cancer that has invaded the liver and has chosen not to try chemo What he decides to do then is not a triumph of the human spiritThere are some really moving pages in which he drafts a letter to his adult son a grad student in California who is not alienated from him but with whom he would like a deeper relationship The rest is kind of tawdry I did not see any nobility in his end of life plans only selfishness and despair Electing Judges unlike the work of the other twoAs you will know from other reviews the book is about a successful New York ad man in his early 60s born to wealth He has just been told he has cancer that has invaded the liver and has chosen not to try chemo What he decides to do then is not a triumph of the human spiritThere are some really moving pages in which he drafts a letter to his adult son a grad student in California who is not alienated from him but with whom he would like a deeper relationship The rest is kind of tawdry I did not see any nobility in his end of life plans only selfishness and despair
