In this magically evocative novel, William Maxwell explores the enigmatic gravity of the past, which compels us to keep explaining it even as it makes liars out of us every time we try. On a winter morning in the 1920s, a shot rings out on a farm in rural Illinois. A man named Lloyd Wilson has been killed. And the tenuous friendship between two lonely teenagers--one privileged yet neglected, the other a troubled farm boy--has been shattered.Fifty years later, one of those boys--now a grown man--tries to reconstruct the events that led up to the murder. In doing so, he is inevitably drawn back to his lost friend Cletus, who has the misfortune of being the son of Wilson's killer and who in the months before witnessed things that Maxwell's narrator can only guess at. Out of memory and imagination, the surmises of children and the destructive passions of their parents, Maxwell creates a luminous American classic of youth and loss.… (lisätietoja)

"So long" and "See you tomorrow," and went our separate ways in the dusk. And one evening this casual parting turned out to be for the last time. We were separated by that pistol shot." (p. 31). Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group. Kindle Edition.

The unnamed narrator is researching and recalling a friendship, a murder, and relationships among tenant farmer families in Lincoln, Illinois, during the 1920s. Fifty years after they occurred, he relies on memory, newspaper articles, and archives to piece together the story and events that have been haunting him and occupying his therapy sessions.

The storyteller did not have friends as a child and adolescent and believes he betrayed his only true friend, Cletus. The tale is dark and explores youthful friendships as well as bullying, loneliness, and guilt. The narrator suffered several childhood tragedies, including the death of his mother, and his misfortunes occurred while he witnessed but did not fully comprehend the marriages and divorces of Cletus's parents and those of Lloyd and Marie Wilson, neighbors and fellow tenant farmers. He is convinced as an older adult that having a better understanding of the relationships will set his mind at ease.

The author mentions more than once that childhood memories are often inaccurate, and children rarely have all aspects of a story in their mental databases. Also, the concept of home, figuratively and literally, and the loss of "home" and its accompanying security as a child, figure into the novel's essence. Thus, this national book award winner is the author's semi-autobiographical narration of a sad endeavor to recreate the past, make amends with his friend and settle his conscience. Maxwell forces us to consider times we have assumed we could see someone "tomorrow" and life interfered.

Lovely, thoughtful, humane story of a tragedy and the interrelationships in a community that led to it and were affected by it. ( )

A brief, childhood friendship which ends in a wordless, silent goodbye at the loud sound of a gunshot, So Long, See You Tomorrow is a semi-autobiographical novel about the ghosts of our past. They are the apparitions that linger at the back of remorseful minds. The ones that frighten and follow us throughout our lives. Engagingly narrated by its protagonist who recalls his friendship with another young boy, it also tells of a murder that disturbed the whole town. A murder which ripped families apart after the flames of betrayal and jealousy turn an adult friendship into ashes. And a lot of parallels between these two friendships cover the field of lasting guilt. But guilt doesn't fasten itself from what was done alone. It also leaks from what one has failed to do. So we see violence as a cause, yet see silence as another. As the tale about the murder further unfolds, various themes refer to problematic power dynamics in a marriage and the consequences of divorce. Maxwell gravely paints its misfortunes and the bubbling bitterness lethal and acidic. It's only a matter of time until people meet their demise. Meanwhile, the narrator dozes on and off on the bed of regret underneath the blanket of memories. There is a painful reminder that some relationships merely don't have closures. We cannot fault ourselves from not having had done enough younger. And we will eventually have to reconcile with the fact.

Some plot details found both here and in They Came Like Swallows pertain to the swift familial history of Maxwell's himself. How dearly he holds his mother in his heart, the altered life after her death is very tangible here as it is in They Came Like Swallows. ( )

Beautiful book--The writing is so exact, yet never feels self-conscious. ( )

Told from the viewpoint of an old man who feels guilt about his broken connection to a high-school friend after the friend suffers a terrible trauma, the story is sad, primal, deeply American. The writing is as clear and sharp as grain alcohol.

What we, or at any rate what I, refer to confidently as memory - meaning a moment, a scene, a fact that has been subjected to a fixative and thereby rescued from oblivion - is really a form of storytelling that goes on continually in the mind and often changes with the telling. Too many conflicting emotional interests are involved for life ever to be wholly acceptable, and possibly it is the work of the storyteller to rearrange things so that they conform to this end. In any case, in talking about the past we lie with every breath we draw.
"There is a limit, surely, to what one can demand of one’s adolescent self."
