The Three Lives of Jonathan Force
by Richard Hawley
Out of his unpromising cultural background, Jonathan Force manages to establish an Archimedean point outside of culture from which to view contemporary life. He becomes a psychologist, a critic and pundit whose published books—Force Fields, Reasonable Force, Uses of Force—strike such surprising and resonant notes thathe public has come to think with his ideas rather than about them.
