Title: The Sunlight Dialogues
Description: Random House 1972 Hardcover. "With Sunlight Express, John Gardner gives us his most ambitious and most astonishing work: a world-size novel in which the complex life of an American small town is perceived as an all-encompassing medieval romance in modern dress, a pathless forest for twentieth-century knights, ladies and wizards. The central plot concerns the quest of a noble but somewhat befuddled old police chief to get hold of and, more important, understand a strange magician called the 'Sunlight Man.' What the Sunlight Man believes in, if anything, is absolute existential freedom. What Chief of Police Fred Clumly believes in is not only Law and Order but also Justice - Absolute Justice here and now. The two mad idealists hunt each other until each drives his enemy to a bedrock humanness, stripped of illusion, full of grace. Dust cover has tears", (ISBN: 039447144X). Good.
