I loved Kate Christensen's The Great Man, a graceful, smart and character-driven novel set in motion by the death of a renowned artist. The characters are the great man's widow and autistic son, his paramour (and mother of his two daughters), his sister (and fellow stellar artist), and others whose lifelong orbits around the titular character begin to decay rapidly away from the weaker gravity of his memory.4/5(71).

This book is indicated as the author's first published novel. If this is the beginning the lady is a definite comer.

However, as we learn about him through the perspectives of the three very different women who were closest to him, I'm inclined to think we're probably getting a multi-faceted - if not necessarily objective - portrait of who he /5.

Good Man, Dalton is a heartwarming story that will entertain readers with its charming characters and unique storyline. Dalton comes from a wealthy family, but decides to experience what life is like for the homeless living in New York City/5.

A good book, about the man who attempted to assassinate the president of Greece, the torture, prison politics, and eventual murder.

The story has been made more difficult to read than necessary by the omission of paragraphs. It is good -- but lacks somewhat in ART -- not as concise or integrated as a true novel should be. Moving, interesting/5. A Good Man by Ani Katz review – a morbidly compelling debut Neither of these is a book that can easily be called good, in the moral sense – Author: Sarah Ditum.

Since starting the Art of Manliness, I’ve read a boatload of books about masculinity, manliness, and simply being a man.

Whether it be a book on adventure, war, or manners, there is so much to learn about life’s great questions. The Great Man is a scintillating comedy of life among the avant-garde—of the untidy truths, needy egos, and jostlings for position behind the glossy facade of artistic greatness.

Not a pretty picture—but a provocative and entertaining one that incarnates the take-no /5(K). ‎This is a humorous novel. A Great Man (), which Bennett subtitled 'A Frolic, ' gives his humorous talent full rein.
