The Solid Mandala by White - AbeBooks
Twinned opposites, held together by circumstances, unable to escape each other, White chronicles their lives. Most of the events are unremarkable -- so much so that the few times there is a dramatic turn it is all the more striking. Both men have a relationship, of sorts, with a Jewish girl and then woman , Dulcie Feinstein, who weds another.
Others, especially their parents and their neighbor, Mrs. Poulter, play significant roles.

Building up slowly, White pulls his reader into what on the surface seems to be a drab little tale but, in fact, resonates with great depth. There are passages as fine as anything he has written and that is saying a lot , and in the pivotal sections on Waldo and Arthur White presents scenes of great strength and beauty.
Tied neatly and ruthlessly together, White has again presented his readers with a magnificent and very human book. We recommend it highly. Trying to meet all your book preview and review needs. Contents: Main.
