Far from a typical coming-of-age-novel. Eli’s Children tells the story of attaining maturity of outlook from influences both momentous and trivial, from experiences both noble and base. Author Gerard G. Nahum successfully carries off the difficult trick of juxtaposing rollicking hilarity with thoughtful, even philosophical, introspection and rendering from it a seamless and compelling narrative. Unique among novels tracking the journey from late adolescence to adulthood, the book stands unmistakably as a period piece, yet without once resorting to an overt cultural or generational reference point. For all that, it tells a story clearly of the pre-internet age, a setting in time established by what is not said, rather than by what is. Graduates and, very likely, current undergraduates of a particular 4-year liberal arts college in New England will find the institutions, traditions and landscape of “Laurelton College” to be quite familiar. A splendid read, at once both hilarious and moving. Well done, Dr. Nahum.
