FEELING IT by L. H. Whittemore


Email this review


Yet another Irish Catholic suburban boyhood which does not concentrate quite as closely on the pubertal rites de massage (although certainly this is part of it) and runs back loosely over what David Marsh felt in other areas: toward his family and one abandoned attempt at running away with a friend; toward the parochial school and his transfer to public school; toward his girl, on and off, whom he will eventually marry; and toward James Dean who lights up his whole future -- an acting career and hopes of becoming a ""man of feeling."" One can't but approve of his good intentions while wishing they'd resulted in something a little more interesting.
