Annotation:
David Guterson (SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS and THE OTHER) reworks the classic Greek myth of Oedipus in this novel about a high-tech businessman. Ed King is the result of an affair between Walter Cousins, a pudgy actuary, and Diane Burroughs, a significantly younger British nanny. Fortunately, when Diane decides she doesn't want the child, she drops it off on the doorstep of a wealthy couple's home. Dan and Alice King could not be happier to have Ed, as they name him, in their lives. (In fact Alice is perhaps a little too happy...) But Ed grows up, goes to Stanford, visits many a psychiatrist, and ultimately amasses fame and fortune thanks to the Internet. Guterson sticks faithfully to Sophocles' plot, so Ed's life does not get a happy ending. But the style and way with words that won Guterson much critical acclaim and many devoted readers shines through in ED KING.
