As a Friend

Author: Forrest Gander

In his gem-like first novel, Forrest Gander writes of friendship, envy, and eros as a harmonic of charged overtones. Set in a rural southern landscape as vivid as its indelible characters,As a Friend tells the story of Les, a gifted man and land surveyor, whose impact on those around him (his girlfriend Sarah, his friend Clay) provokes intense self-examination and an atmosphere of dangerous eroticism. With poetic insight, Gander explores the nature of attraction, betrayal and loyalty. What he achieves is brilliant in style and powerfully unsettling.
