Danny the 1st main character in The Keep

February 6, 2007

Danny is the initial main character in Jennifer Egan’s novel The Keep.  He is a 30something lifer restaurant employee from NY who still has a favorite pair of boots and wears mascara.  His story in The Keep is great; unfortunately it’s the one that gets the axe when Egan gets precious with the plot.  I’m bummed to say The Keep is tops on my list for turd book ending for 07’s reading to date.  Danny’s the man though.
