Book Summary of So Long, See You Tomorrow

An extraordinary and beautiful novel from one of American's greatest novelists.

In rural Illinois two tenant farmers share much, finally too much, until jealously leads to murder and suicide. A tenuous friendship between lonely teenagers - the narrator, whose mother has died young, and Cletus Smith, the troubled witness to his parent's misery - is shattered. After the murder and upheavals that follow, the boys never speak again. Fifty years on, the narrator attempts a reconstruction of those devastating events and the atonement of a lifetime's regret.

Maria September 22, 2007 review from Goodreads

I don't know how I'd never read this before. It's particularly silly, because I've read possibly three entire books about William Maxwell, and certainly plenty of his New Yorker stuff, just in the way one reads randomly bits of things over the years, and they accrue, and one day, you realize, Hel...

Jimmy July 28, 2010 review from Goodreads

4.5 stars. I listened to a story on NPR the other day about how the police can often tell if a suspect is lying because the lies are elaborated fully with so much detail, as if to make up for the fabrication, whereas the truth is often very simple.This book reminded me of that because it is elabo...

Jenny December 30, 2012 review from Goodreads

"So Long, See You Tomorrow" is one of those books that makes me want to leave my job and hide myself away somewhere and do nothing but write until I can produce something as good as this. I agree with these reviewers:"This is one of the great books of our age. It is the subtlest of miniatures tha...

Tom December 30, 2008 review from Goodreads

The most heart-breaking novel I've ever read (with John Williams' Stoner a close second). I've read it several times, taught it twice, and the ending never fails to put a lump in my throat.
