Student Activities, alongside the Professional Growth Committee, will be offering a series of speakers next semester. Dr. Deblel will lecture on his new novel “The Flight Of Jimmy Eagleson,” which is the first book of his new series.
Jimmy Eagleson is a high-power, high-living lawyer with more money than he can spend, but life isn’t good. His grinding disquiet from empty, stone-cold memories of his father is intensified by the bitterness of divorce and his cynicism toward the American business world he thrives in. Then, a trove of secret letters from World War II turns up.
Jimmy’s flight takes him to a brawl in the Adirondacks’ backwoods, sailing in the Gulf of Mexico with a much younger woman, a showdown with his unscrupulous New York City adversary, back in time to Second World War Europe, and finally to a multifaceted and thought-provoking end.
