It is the tale of Binx Bolling, a small-time stockbroker who lives quietly in suburban New Orleans, pursuing an interest in the movies, affairs with his secretaries, and living out his days. But soon he finds himself on a "search" for something more important, some spiritual truth to anchor him. Binx's life floats casually along until one fateful Mardi Gras week, when a bizarre series of events leads him to his unlikely salvation. In his half-brother Lonnie, who is confined to a wheelchair and soon to die, and his stepcousin Kate, whose predicament is even more ominous, Binx begins to find the sort of "certified reality" that had eluded him everywhere but at the movies., Bildungsromans., DLCDLCDLC, Digital content provided by hoopla., Electronic books., FIC PERCY, FICTION / Literary, Hurt, Christopher,1959-, Literary; General Fiction, MWT10077736, MWT11553712, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., National Book Award for Fiction, 1962, New Orleans (La.), New York :Vintage International,1998., Open Road Media2011, PS3566.E6912M68 1998, Percy's National Book AwardƯ-winning classic: A young man, torn between the forces of tradition and change, searches for meaning in post-war America On the cusp of his thirtieth birthday, Binx Bolling is a lost soul.
