Leaving Disneyland by Alexander Parsons

Issue #86
Winter 2001-02

Robert Boswell recommends
Leaving Disneyland, a novel by Alexander Parsons: ”
Leaving Disneyland is a powerful and wide-ranging story of betrayal, violence, and regret. The book is brutally honest, unsparing, and written with amazing authority. The piercing sadness of Doc Kane is so beautifully rendered that the reader comes to see it as something more-a way of being, perhaps, or a permutation of love.” (St. Martin’s)
