David Borofka talks about his new novel The End of Good Intentions

October 23 @ 7:00 pm


Writer David Borofka will discuss his new novel “The End of Good Intentions,” from 7 to 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 23, at Bloomsbury Books, 290 E. Main St., Ashland.

Set between the mid-1970s and today, the novel moves back and forth through the turbulence of recent American history, charting the course of characters such as Michael Wayte, the pre-ministerial student who becomes the owner of a foothill bar; Leah Green, the Jewish student who finds herself a stranger in a strange Christian environment; Walter Book, the gay English professor, who doesn’t know he’s gay; and Eivar Mortenson, whose actions at the beginning of the novel become the catalyst for all that is to come.

In “The End of Good Intentions,” David Borofka examines the gap between desire and emptiness, conviction and extremism, those who believe absolutely in the certitude of their perspective and those who live on the outer margins of doubt and uncertainty.
