Review from
If ever there was a book that should not be judged by its cover, it is William H. Coles’, Mc Dowell. The demure portrait of a mature male figure on the cover is a stark contrast to the mountain climbing, womanizing and identity remaking encountered in the enigmatic character of Mc Dowell. Mc Dowell is a compelling, thought-provoking narrative that mediates on the philosophy of defeat, success, truth, misery, self-discovery, and identity.
Coles action-packed narrative explores what occurs after the attaining of the American Dream. His characterization of a caring yet distant father and husband is epitomized in his eponymous protagonist Hiram McDowell a successful, ambitious, well-rounded surgeon who becomes the President of the International College of Surgeons in Denver among other accolades.
