Never Fade Away
A Novel
William Hart

ISBN 1-56474-386-1
208 pages, paperback, $12.95
At a state university in mid-1980s Los Angeles, freshman English routinely turns ethnic minority and immigrant students into ex-students—until an untenured instructor bucks the system.

“William Hart has written a powerful, arresting first novel that explores the teacher/student relationship in a new and complex way. This is a book about heroism, about the scars of Vietnam, and, ultimately, about love.”
—T. Coraghessan Boyle

“Hart puts an unusual spin on the relationship between student and teacher in this promising debut novel, which begins when a Vietnamese student names Tina Le signs up for an ESL language course taught by a disgruntled, deeply damaged Vietnam vet John Goddard at a California state college.… Hart finds a nice prose rhythm as he shifts back and forth between Goddard and his student, and he avoids the obvious clichés as he explores the nuances of their relationship and the inherent inequities of the academic system that brings them together.… This is a solidly impressive debut by a writer worth watching.”
