Truly Like Lightning
Big. Many novelists select a sliver of human experience and convey something about life with insight. In his novel titled, Truly Like Lightning, David Duchovny tackles the big questions of life and offers a story of a tragic hero who struggles with finding his place in the world doing what he discerns is right and trying to be aligned with what he thinks God would want him to do. The setting of this novel in the desert offers a backdrop for addressing those big questions through the choices protagonist Bronson Powers makes for himself, his wives, and his children, as they try to live out a life as Mormons conflicted with the mores of contemporary American life. We all try to answer for ourselves the big questions explored in this finely written novel. We feel deeply for the characters in this novel as they struggle to discern a right path forward in their lives.
