Audible Editor Reviews

"One of the very few good, ambitious and important novels to have been done by the writers of my generation." (Norman Mailer)

Publisher's Summary

The lives of four Americans born between the world wars are intertwined to devastating effect in this gripping novel from one of the 20th century's most acclaimed authors.

Beautiful, sad Ellen Beniger; her younger brother, Tom, a scholar unhappily moonlighting as a TV writer; the athletic amorist Guy Cinturon; and tough little Eddie Bissle, ex-infantryman and Ellen's secret lover, struggle to come to grips with the limits of their futures and the scars of their pasts as they enter middle age. Will the physical, emotional, and spiritual violations they have endured remain with them forever? Or can they be healed?

As The Violated builds to its stunning climax, the story of four lost souls reveals heartbreaking truths about the dark side of post-World War II America.
