 Our Description

 

Returning home to the small Louisiana parish where he had practiced psychiatry, Dr. Tom More quickly notices something strange occuring with the townfolk, a loss of inhibitions. Behind this mystery is a dangerous plot drug the local water supply, and a discovery that takes More into the underside of the American search for happiness.

 

"There is ample evidence of Percy's brilliance in The Thanatos Syndrome - the droll Dixie anthropology, the pitch-perfect dialogue, the sheer intelligence everywhere on the page.... It is splendidly, uproariously catholic, as well." --Douglas Bauer, Atlantic Monthly

Walker Percy is the author of over ten books of fiction and nonfiction, including the bestsellers The Moviegoer and The Thanatos Syndrome. He was awarded numerous prizes during his lifetime, including the National Book Award, and is considered to be one of the greatest American writers of our time. He died in 1990.
