The second volume in Frederick Exley's trilogy of autobiographical novels is in every way a worthy sequel to the much-acclaimed A Fan's Notes. Pages from a Cold Island begins with the death of Edmund Wilson, a devastating event that sends Exley on an obsessive personal odyssey from Alexandria Bay on the St. Lawrence River to a resort island off the coast of Florida to the Iowa Writer's Workshop. Our hero lurches from one outrageous encounter to another in a chronicle full of irrepressible energy and no-holds-barred confession.
