Sample text

In certain respects Melville Goodwin, USA is Marquand's greatest triumph of style. It is told in the first person by Sidney Skelton, a fairly typical mass-communications and "entertainment world" figure. But much that Skelton relays comes to him from the reminiscences of General Goodwin, as he is being interviewed by a writer from a magazine that is doing a "cover story" on him, and from conversations with the general's wife. Skelton plays a role rather like that of Horatio Willing in The Late George Apley, in that his language and his attitudes define him as shallow, confused, and lacking in fundamental integrity.
