Walker Percy
The Moviegoer
1961

In The Moviegoer, perhaps the greatest American existential novel, Percy uses his trademark humor and pathos to tell the story of Binx Bolling, who finds comfort in the world of movies, where good and evil are clearly defined. Finally, it's Percy portrayal of the troubling and complex world outside the moviehouse that makes the novel resonate. It will stay with you long after the credits roll.
