5.0 out of 5 stars Family Secrets with a Twist 9 Sep 2012
By J. L. Comeau - Published on Amazon.com
Beloved American literary icon Richard Matheson is so well known for his many works of science fiction, fantasy, thrillers, science fiction, westerns, mainstream novels, teleplays and screenplays that it seems to many of us, his legion of adoring fans, that we have a personal relationship with the author. Except that it has been heretofore impossible to find any personal information about Mr. Matheson because--to his credit in this increasingly over-sharing culture--he is a very private person. GENERATIONS is a new autobiographical novel about the author's formative years, however, because it is a Matheson creation, it is a novel with a singular twist. The story takes place at a family gathering following the death of Mr. Matheson's father, but it is a gathering that never took place, and the conversations and revelations contained in the narrative never occurred. As the author tells us, "The strangeness of this account is that it never happened. It could have happened. For that matter, it should have happened." By imagining what should have happened, the author explores and reveals family relationships, buried secrets and demons that most families share in common but almost never share with those closest to them. In GENERATIONS, you will meet young Richard Matheson and his Norwegian relatives in 1950s Flatbush, New York. Above the din of the family chatter, laughter, recriminations and arguments always hovers the presence of the author's deceased father, a complicated man with whom Richard had a difficult relationship. The story is presented as the groundwork of a stage play: Overture, Act One, Act Two, Act Three, and it is Mr. Matheson's wish that his autobiographical novel eventually be properly produced on stage. Indeed, what a wonderful and riveting stage play GENERATIONS would make! As with all of Mr. Matheson's work, the reader is swept into a world of phantasmagorical reality, introduced to fictional yet universal truths, and invited to ponder our own place in our families and in the world. This is the unique magic of a Richard Matheson novel, and GENERATIONS is triumph and a joy.
