Why isn’t Douglas Kennedy a household name like Jodi Picoult? He should be. His intelligent novels walk the line between literary and commercial fiction, like Picoult’s. And just as she does, he constructs plots around hotbutton social issues. His latest, State of the Union — about the decisions that haunt a 1960s rebel some 30 years later — is a bit overwrought in places, but Kennedy is such a nimble storyteller that the pages fly. Do yourself a favor and look up some of his earlier novels: The Big Picture, Leaving the World, and A Special Relationship. B
