  All of Percy's novels, from "Moviegoer" to "Thanatos," mainly feature "the 
search." No one I've read is better than WP at asking First Questions, and at 
showing how tricky and frail most of our answers to these are (and doing this 
in an entertaining way).  If my life were on the line, I don't believe I could 
name three writers less "doctrinaire" than WP -- even though he was capable 
of coming to certain fairly safe and obvious conclusions, to wit: Trapper John 
and Hawkeye Pearce were arrogant, self-satisfied pricks, and college students 
a bad lot (Can anyone really argue with either of these?) But then I freely 
admit to being out of step with the 70s, 80s, 90s, and whatever it is you call 
what we're in now.
