The Moviegoer by Walker Percy

This is a funny book! Yet also very deep. Audible has a nice performance of this available for just $5.95! 

 

 

Binx Bolling is quite a Bourbon Street dandy!
What do you think he is seeking in all the movies he watches?
Why is he fascinated with actors?

Or is he??

As someone wrote in this New York Times obituary:

In 1966 (Percy) wrote: ”What began to interest me was not the physiological and pathological processes within man’s body but the problem of man himself, the nature and destiny of man; specifically and more immediately, the predicament of man in a modern technological society.”
