The Pilgrim Hawk: A Love Story by Glenway Wescott

The Pilgrim Hawk: A Love Story - Michael Cunningham, Glenway Wescott

Some of the writing was well-done, but I didn't find the plot all that interesting. The contrast between the action and the philosophizing was also quite abrupt, and I especially didn't care for the latter. I was rather disappointed with this book.
