9780312263034: The Coming Storm

Set against the backdrop of a traditional boys' school in upstate New York, The Coming Storm is a delicately and brilliantly rendered tale that reveals the most closely held secrets of the human heart. Russell's award-winning novel is the story of four interlocking lives - Louis Tremper, the headmaster at the Forge School; his wife Claire; Tracey Parker, a 25-year old gay man and recently hired teacher at the Forge School; and Noah Lathrop III, a troubled student; all of whom struggle with their own inner demons, desires, and conflicted loyalties. When Tracey and Noah become involved in an illicit relationship, dark incidents from the school's past begin colliding with the current growing confusion that all of them must face. Compelling and poignant, this is the finest work yet from one of best contemporary American novelists.

About the Author:

Paul Russell is the author of three novels―The Salt Point, Boys of Life, and Sea of Tranquillity―as well as The Gay 100, a work of non-fiction. He is Professor of English at Vassar College and lives in upstate New York.

From Kirkus Reviews:

The lessons of E.M. Forster's carefully encoded fiction and of John Knowles's prep school classic, A Separate Peace, have been skillfully absorbed into this ambitious portrayal of contemporary gay relationships by the author of Boys of Life (1991), etc. The novel is a painstaking interweaving of the lives of four characters (whose several viewpoints observe the storys action) in residence at the upstate New York Forge School, a Groton or Exeter-like academy that caters to the underachieving sons of the wealthy. Case in point: 15-year-old Noah Lathrop III, a moody, undisciplined bright kid reluctantly confronting the probability that he's homosexual. Noah's inchoate feelings inevitably focus on Tracy Parker, a handsome gay teacher (ten years Noah's senior) whose commitment to the Forge School ostensibly represents ``his clean break from. . . . [New York] city, the entanglements it had come to stand for.'' The intimacy that Noah and Tracy stumble into also impinges upon Forge's headmaster, Louis Tremper, a 60ish administrator whose unfinishable scholarly research on Thomas Mann masks his own carefully suppressed sexual secrets; and upon Louis's stalwart wife Claire, whose very capabilities ironically help sustain the couples ``companionable'' (if loveless) marriage. The titles ``coming storm,'' which assumes multiple symbolic and literal forms throughout, is AIDSwhich Tracy passively expects will claim him, a fact oddly figuring in Noah's possible liberation and maturing. The novel is distinguished by narrative clarity and succinctness and by Russell's intelligent exploration of his characters' quite credible vacillations between passion and indifference, candor and deceitbut its crucially weakened by its trite, bathetic sexual explicitness: these people's inner lives are far more interesting than their (after all, drearily generic) couplings. One finishes this frustratingly uneven fiction feeling that, had it been written 40 years ago, it might have been a first-rate novel. Still, even as is, it's probably Russell's best yet. -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
