An Unfinished Season by Ward Just

An Unfinished Season is set in 1950s Chicago, with Wilson Ravan spending his last summer before going off to college. His father is a conservative business man battling unions and workers he no longer understands. Through his father, he gets a job at a blue-collar tabloid newspaper. Wilson spends his evenings attending debutante balls in tony suburbs and falls in love with a beautiful, but mysterious, girl. An Unfinished Season is a young man's search for personal growth and his place in the world during a summer spent in conflicting environs amid Cold War and class struggle tensions. Ward Just has delivered a novel that underscores an era with universal themes of family, love, and conflict. An Unfinished Season has received mostly positive reviews with the Washington Post calling it "A beautiful, wise book," and USA Today calling it a "stunning and complex new novel."
