Description from dust jacket
The Thanatos Syndrome is a profoundly serious and often very funny novel which scans American culture like radar. Walker Percy has been called “our cool Dostoevsky,” and an interlude in the novel entitled “Father Smith’s Confession” – which demonstrates how easily evil is committed by people convinced they are doing what is right and good – reinforces his claim to this title. Dr. Tom More, “an old-fashioned physician of the soul” in his seedy seersucker suit, is the life-affirming hero of this splendid novel about life over death.
