A brief, childhood friendship which ends in a wordless, silent goodbye at the loud sound of a gunshot, So Long, See You Tomorrow is a semi-autobiographical novel about the ghosts of our past. They are the apparitions that linger at the back of remorseful minds. The ones that frighten and follow us throughout our lives. Engagingly narrated by its protagonist who recalls his friendship with another young boy, it also tells of a murder that disturbed the whole town. A murder which ripped families apart after the flames of betrayal and jealousy turn an adult friendship into ashes. And a lot of parallels between these two friendships cover the field of lasting guilt. But guilt doesn't fasten itself from what was done alone. It also leaks from what one has failed to do. So we see violence as a cause, yet see silence as another. As the tale about the murder further unfolds, various themes refer to problematic power dynamics in a marriage and the consequences of divorce. Maxwell gravely paints its misfortunes and the bubbling bitterness lethal and acidic. It's only a matter of time until people meet their demise. Meanwhile, the narrator dozes on and off on the bed of regret underneath the blanket of memories. There is a painful reminder that some relationships merely don't have closures. We cannot fault ourselves from not having had done enough younger. And we will eventually have to reconcile with the fact.

Some plot details found both here and in They Came Like Swallows pertain to the swift familial history of Maxwell's himself. How dearly he holds his mother in his heart, the altered life after her death is very tangible here as it is in They Came Like Swallows. ( )

Beautiful book--The writing is so exact, yet never feels self-conscious. ( )

This came to me with the highest possible recommendation and I was a little disappointed not to be wowed by it. There was much to admire, but not enough to love, in this reader's opinion. It's a story of regret and unhappiness as the narrator looks back on his childhood and juxtaposes his own response to his mother's death and his father's remarriage to the total breakdown of two neighbouring families. His inability to communicate his sadness and his need for love and understanding to his father extends beyond his person identity and leaves him utterly ill-equipped to reach out to and empathize with a childhood friend.

This sense of having failed revolves around a single moment and missed opportunity, but it creates such a lasting impact that it comes to define the narrator's sense of self for the next 50 years. I wish I'd liked it more. ( )

Told from the viewpoint of an old man who feels guilt about his broken connection to a high-school friend after the friend suffers a terrible trauma, the story is sad, primal, deeply American. The writing is as clear and sharp as grain alcohol.

The gravel pit was about a mile east of town, and the size of a small lake, and so deep that boys under sixteen were forbidden by their parents to swim there.

What we, or at any rate what I, refer to confidently as memory - meaning a moment, a scene, a fact that has been subjected to a fixative and thereby rescued from oblivion - is really a form of storytelling that goes on continually in the mind and often changes with the telling. Too many conflicting emotional interests are involved for life ever to be wholly acceptable, and possibly it is the work of the storyteller to rearrange things so that they conform to this end. In any case, in talking about the past we lie with every breath we draw.
"There is a limit, surely, to what one can demand of one’s adolescent self."
