Palace Council Read & download à 108 “Carter twists plotlines like pretzels while wryly skewering America’s wealthy intellectual elite” PeopleJohn Grisham called Stephen L Carter’s first novel The Emperor of Ocean Park “beautifully written and cleverly plotted A rich complex family saga one deftly woven through a fine legal thriller” The Chicago Tribune hailed Carter’s next book New England White as “a whodunit with conscience” Now this best selling novelist returns with an electrifying. I want to weep with disgust that a book can be so banal and so long Reading it was mentally exhausting and emotionally distressing because it was so dull and yet so complicated It s a murder mystery a political thriller a missing persons uest ranging from 1952 to 1975 among Harlem s black upper class It has Dan Brown like elements of conspiracy riddles are solved with the help of passages from Paradise Lost and Lady Chatterley s Lover The most annoying thing is Carter s insistence on incorporating every possible historical event into his narrative Chappauiddick it s here The characters are on Martha s Vineyard when it goes down Watergate Kent State the moon landing the Weather Underground bombing in Manhattan the Attica prison riot the Tet Offensive the discovery of the oldest human remains in Kenya political assassinations they all happen here Richard Nixon is implausibly friends with Eddie and Aurie the two main characters Eddie also writes speeches for JFK and before that he was mentored by Langston Hughes later in Vietnam he sees William Colby CIA Chief of Station limbering up for a tennis match He pays a visit to Joseph P Kennedy to solicit help finding his missing sister It makes one think of the roads not taken would it have been too much effort for Eddie to have had an affair with Marilyn Monroe or perhaps cradled a dying Martin Luther King Jr in his arms Perhaps Aurie could have fallen in love with Spiro Agnew Someone could have seen Bernard Barker running from the Watergate complex as they were making love to Eartha Kitt in the Howard Johnson s across the streetCarter thanks his marvelous editor Phyllis Grann but I want to know what Ms Grann did If she edited the manuscript down from 1800 pages to 577 then yes that is marvelous But I think it s slightly likely that most every word that popped into Carter s head made it in so shame shame shame on you Phyllis Grann
