Summary
One of the most important American thinkers and novelists of the latter half of the twentieth century, Walker Percy in his six novels and numerous essays gave a Christian existentialist critique of a contemporary society. Emphasizing the mystery of free persons, Percy's writings explore and dramatize the mystery of interpersonal relations and the mystery of human person's relationship with God. This book explores Percy's existential and religious vision
