Item description for Going by Kevin Oderman...

Heir to an expat literary tradition that includes the work of Ernest Hemingway, Lawrence Durrell, Graham Greene, and Paul Bowles, Kevin Oderman's Going combines a love story and a tale of intrigue in a narrative of surprising twists that illuminate the moral quandaries faced by the main characters.

In Granada, a boy in a dress begs in the white alleys of the old town. A runaway and vulnerable, he turns for protection to an American painter, Madeleine James, who is living in the city, and to her new friend, the poet Cy Jacobs. Although the two adults mean to help the boy, they unwittingly expose him to more peril. Soon all the characters in the story have been scraped on the touchstone of hard realities and made to show their mettle, be it base or gold. At times somber and at times flaring with intensity, Kevin Oderman's Going calls up indelibly the difficulties of making a good life--and in Cy's case, a good death--in a world in which we are all, in one way or another, going.

Reviews - What do customers think about Going?

Hemingway, Bowles, Oderman  Sep 23, 2006
In this subtle, beautiful novel about the adventures and misadventures of four Americans in Granada and Morocco, Kevin Oderman steps nimbly in the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway, Paul Bowles, Graham Greene, and other writers who have explored the exotic. What is perhaps most impressive about Oderman's book is its restraint. Even as it juxtaposes the hand-to-mouth life of a transsexual runaway with the lives of the privileged Americans, even as it considers the terminal illness of one of the American characters, it never veers into sentimentality. Even as it speeds toward a dramatic finale, it never succumbs to melodrama. And while Going could be called a thriller, it's also a thinking person's novel, with rewarding insights into, among many subjects, Art. Well worth the modest price of admission.
