    One thought on “Nebraska

    1. John Treat

      This book is beyond good. It is perfect. It may be the Great American Novel.I looked George Whitmore up on the Internet. He was beautiful. He died a long time ago at age 43. Not fair, not fair, not fair. He made a deal with AIDS and AIDS didn't keep its half of the deal. But I will not be angry because, in NEBRASKA, Craig and his Uncle Wayne are not angry and they had every right to be.

      So Nebraska was written by one the less prolific members of the Violet Quill Club. The VCQ was a writer's group basically of gay New York men that first started meeting in the 1970's. Its most famous members are Felice Picano and Edmund White. VCQ members are credited, to some extent, with kicking off the gay literary movement--the production of fiction by and for gay men (and lesbians by extension I guess, but knowing most fags, they weren't thinking about much more than themselves).A lot of VC [...]

      The beginning of "Nebraska" sets the dark tone for the whole book; a 12 year old boy runs out into the street in his small town, is hit by a car and loses his leg. The boy will continue to face hard times, the loss of his father to alcoholism and the loss of his gay uncle to medical "therapy." "Nebraska," one of two novels that George Whitmore ever wrote, is strongest in its depiction of rural life. The unnamed boy's narrative rings true: "One thing was for sure, no one had ever turned to Mama, [...]

      George Whitmore died of complications from AIDS two years after the publication of “Nebraska.” He was in his early forties. Another member of a lost generation of artists and writers taken by the plague. It’s a shame he published so little fiction, because “Nebraska” is a work of dark beauty. I read it thinking: this is a classic. Why had I never heard of it before? I bought a first edition hardcover for 99 cents after the writer, Dale Peck, posted about it on twitter. I now count it a [...]


      Well worth a read. A tragi-comedy I believe it's called although the tragedy seems to be confined to Craig the boy from whose perspective we follow the events. He has little to laugh about. We see everything through his eyes so there are gaps in the narrative as the boy doesn't see the full story so he fills in the gaps and makes assumptions about his Uncle Wayne. So do we but things are not what they seem.There is some very good characterisation and you really feel that you know these people; t [...]

      Craig, the narrator, is crippled as a youngster in an accident, but that is just the beginning of his troubles. His uncle Wayne, just out of the Navy comes to stay and initially helps care for him, but there are things nobody then knows about Wayne. The unfolding story is both sad and disturbing. It is well told and we really feel for the young Craig. A moving short novel, that perhaps is not entirely without hope.
