War hero, football star, banker, alcoholic, privileged daughter rejecting privilege, abortion, murder and evangelism, politics, labor unrest, academic snobbery, independence, aloofness, social yearning, ending with a bank failure. Fits in with 2008, very much a product of the Great Depression. Thinly veiled modeling of Sergeant York, in an unknown southern state that can only be Tennessee, "At Heaven's Gate" is very much a first novel. Lots of ideas, lots of structure, very good vignettes, and digression into post grad academic writing. This is practice for "All The King's Men." ( )
