Mercy of a Rude Stream is that rare work of fiction that creates, through its style and narration, a new form of art. Indeed, the two juxtaposed voices—one of the 'little boys swimming in a sea of glory,' the other of one of those same boys 'in old age being rudely swept to sea'—creates a counterpoint, jarring yet oddly harmonious, that makes this prophetic American work such an lasting statement on the frailties of memory and the essence of human consciousness. This 1994 St Martins Pr Paperback is in good condition.
