Lee Goodell''s life decisions--to become a sculptor, to sojourn in the mean streets of the South Side, to marry into the haute-intellectual culture of Hyde Park--play out against the crude glamour of mid-century Chicago.
Aspiring sculptor Lee Goodell tries to adapt to university life and at the same time gets yanked into contact with a horrible shock of his boyhood in RODIN'S DEBUTANTE. Ward Just's novel set in a postwar Chicago teems with characters who cannot outrun their prewar traumas, especially Magda, a girl raped in Goodell's suburban hometown, who appears suddenly with vague memories of her attack. While trying to impress his school benefactor, Goodell suffers his own assault by some South Side thugs, twisting his attention back toward the void of his youth.


"Stealthily meshing the gothic with the modern, the feral with the civilized, in this mordantly funny yet profoundly mysterious novel, Just asks what divides and what unites us." (starred review) - Donna Seaman 02/01/2011
