Upon reading an early draft of Nathaniel Lande's novel, William Styron called it qa lovely confection of unforgettable characters, a gem of a story full of smiles.q The Life and Times of Homer Sincere, Nathanial Lande's picaresque novel, begins and ends with the wonderfully endearing friendship of its two main characters, Homer Sincere and Rigby Canfield, whose adventures take them from childhood to adulthood, from mysterious hangouts in New Orleans to the silver screen in Hollywood, and which leads them both to fall in love with the same woman. As a boy, Homer is swept up in the notion of becoming a Soldier of the Word. As he grows up and deals with the struggles of being an orphan, he learns to use his vivid imagination to overcome the obstacles in his path, becoming a writer and eventually writing for the last great Hollywood studio. The Life and Times of Homer Sincere embraces the landscape of America and captures the innocence of an earlier time full of mischief, real life heroes and the simplicity of friendships that feel like family. Inspired by the great writers, Homer is a different kind of hero who will appeal to all those who follow their dreams to New York and Hollywood's romantic world of cowboys and heroes.And Father Rivagea#39;s verbal essay about the beauty of land and resources. These simple thoughts, from a simple man, inspired Homer and again he took to Dateline. DATELINE: NEW YORK: BY OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT A TOWNanbsp;...
