Review: FLIGHT OF THE BOWYER by Kenneth R. Lewis
Deeply complex and riveting, FLIGHT OF THE BOWYER takes on issues that are personal, familial, of the extended family, of the community, and of politics and government. Additionally, it delves into class status ( that which American ideology decries but which is adamantly propelled by socioeconomic factors and their constantly mutating consequences). Throughout the novel we range from individual to parent and child, to.extended family, to community, then local, state, and national government. This is a novel of political chicanery and dirty-dealing, but it is also a triumph of the human heart and mind. For the hundreds, the thousands, who seek only their own self-aggrandizement, there remain individuals of integrity, such as protagonist Jace Fuller, and his young but fast-maturing son Josh.
