Seventeen-year-o Home is where the Heart is Set in California’s rural wine country in the mid ‘s this novel introduces readers to the Macauley family of fictitious Ithaca.


It was a lot better than what I thought it would be. The common battle, that which the characters and we are all fighting, is our attempt to make sense of the craziness of the world we live in. Get the traveler safely home and get me to Ithaca.

Refresh and try again. It doesn’t make any sense. A classic from the home front of WWII. The sentences are short and crisp.

The heart of the book is the manager of the telegraph office who offers up worldly wisdom throughout. Homer has lied about his age and is working as a delivery boy for a telegraph company and some of the telegrams he delivers are from the war department announcing the death of a son overseas. Mickey Rooney really makes this story come alive. Homer, che di giorno frequenta il liceo, la sera si tuffa in bicicletta alla volta dell’ufficio del telegrafo, dove lavora come portalettere.

The constant preaching of oh-so-inspiring life advice and paragraph-long dialogues was exactly what made me wish I were instead watching Season Six of Buffy: If it is due to the early loss of his father, his need to work and the absence of his older bother, not spoilingthen that was not enough for me. In the end of my senseless ranting, The Human Comedy is a mediocre novel with forgettable lessons.


Homer begins to work at the telegraph office delivering messages around town because his brother Marcus has been drafted l their father had died. It frequently shifts focus from one character to the next, trading off chapters so that even the Old Telegraph Operator gets his day in the sun.

This book was written during WW2 and there are plenty of Rockwell-esque moments here–boys running around a small town with colorfully-nicknnamed chums, creaky old guy commedi the local telegraph station, women with big hair attending their monthly social gathering. This could have been a stumbling block for my appreciation of the story, but because faith is not shoved upon the reader it is not a problem either. The story is centered around the Great Depression but yet finds hope even though there is a war.

Simple and powerful language, like a stripped down Steinbeck. Why is the 14 year old Homer so philosophical, thinks and reacts as a 50 year old. After six or seven chapters, the pattern made me uncomfortable. The evil man must be forgiven every day.
