Not my style  Jan 18, 2010
I have to say I was at first intrigued by the plot and it is definitely a little rough the first couple of pages. It certainly does pick up after those pages but it just never really grabbed me in for the whole book. There were parts that certainly had me glued to the pages but it never seemed consistent to me that I had to keep reading it all the time. A worthy first effort by the author and i won't say if I would recommend it or not because it isn't my place to do that but it had it's entertaining moments.
A Strange and Wonderful Book  Apr 15, 2009
From the Homeric cadence of the prologue to the blistering indictment of the entire world with which it ends, Frank Durham's novel, "Cain's Version," is a strange and wonderful book. It is an allegory of man's search for redemption, an epic saga spanning millennia, and a multifaceted tale of familial love. The novel encapsulates the love of a mother for her child, a child for her father, a lost mother, a wayward son; a cast of characters searching in vain for definition, understanding, salvation.

Lindy Caton has accepted a position as Director of the Moulton Foundation, a public service organization located in a declining town in central Louisiana. She has moved from Little Rock, in the wake of the failure of her marriage to a bisexual philandering charlatan of a preacher, to be closer to her aging father. She befriends a young woman named Eshana Barmore, and grows enchanted with Joeab, Eshana's angelic though developmentally challenged son.

In response to Eshana's concerns about Joeab's tendency to wander, and progressively wander into the home of three ancient ladies, Adhah, Seelah, and Uhwe, Lindy investigates and discovers the otherworldly trio. In fact, their otherworldliness triggers multiple crises ending in death and loss, of minds and hopes and any rational conceptions of reality. In fact, one sign of this novel's power is the moment late in the book, when Lindy and her ex, who has miraculously turned up, go searching for the eponymous Cain through an empty Louisiana night. In the midst of reading this passage, I paused to contemplate its utter unreality, and then delved back into the tale, realizing it wasn't implausible at all.

This is Frank Durham's first, and last, novel, written at the end of a long and fruitful life. Unlike most such valedictory efforts, it is emphatically not autobiographical, or if it is, it is done in the most oblique manner possible. A fascinating read. I couldn't put it down until it was done.
Clever and Creative  Feb 8, 2009
You really have to read beyond the first few pages, the story really picks up. Its really a quick read.
not my style  Jan 11, 2009
This book just didn't grab my interest after the first few pages. Maybe I was not in the mood for the highminded! I might try to read it another time.
