Book Review: The Optimistic Existentialist by Richard Campagnacategories: Books, Literature & Fiction, Genre Fiction, Political, existentialism
Existentialist ComebackIt seems that existentialism, particularly existentialism with an optimistic bent, is on the way back. Politicians are invoking the word cautiously, Hollywood is producing more existentially themed movies than ever before and the word is all the rage at sophisticated cocktail parties. The author, an optimistic, spiritual existentialist all of his life, has never wavered. This novelette depicts an existential life style and philosophy, through the actions of protagonist, Martin P. Feinstein, a radio newsman based in Providence, R.I.
Like so many existential plots, the action is disjointed; therein lies the beauty of the story. Marty's life was successful and real due to the mere fact that he lived it..by opting and choosing his path..every waking moment. Well written and cleverly conceived. Interesting ethnic, geographical and era images abound.
