The Inkling by Fred Chappell is, says the New York Times, "A work of genuine talent ... Chappell writes with power and passion and with flashes of humor." This early novel of Chappell's takes sixteen-year-old Jan to where we often try to go--the place where all is right just before it goes wrong. The novel begins and ends with Jan's vision in just that place and with his searing pain of ignorance and failure. Chappell gives us characters for tragedy: a mother, bereaved and weak; her two children, a retarded older girl and, in contrast, a bright younger boy deeply frightened by what he.
