As the elderly hero of Thomas Rayfiel's daring new novel, In Pinelight, sits in an old folks' home responding to the questions of an unseen interrogator, the fragments he supplies form the portrait of a man's life in upstate New York. Losses, loves, destructive family relationships, sexual entanglements, and moments of mystical awareness filter through the seeming minutiae of small-town gossip to confront the reader with their cumulative power. In Pinelight stirs the emotions both by its formal virtuosity and by the precision with which the narrator is able to reveal human psychology. Rayfiel seeks to capture the essence of historical forces and to illuminate the inescapable truths we would rather not see.
Thomas Rayfiel is the author of six novels, including Time Among the Dead (2010) and Colony Girl (1999), a Los Angeles Times Notable Book of the Year.
