"Set in Eisenhower-era Chicago, 'An Unfinished Season' brilliantly evokes a city, an epoch, and a shift in ideals through the closely observed story of nineteen-year-old Wilson Ravan. In his summer before college, Wils finds himself straddling three worlds; the working-class newsroom where he's landed a coveted job, the whirl of glittering North Shore debutante parties where he spends his nights, and the growing cold war between his parents at home. With unparalleled grace, Ward Just brings Wils's circle to radiant life. Through his finely wrought portraits of a father and son, young lovers, and newsroom dramas, Just also stirringly depicts an American Political era."--Jacket.

Justin Ward is a "reader's writer."
His writing is beautiful as he weaves fine characterization with the jazz music and literature of the time period. A new author for me - I shall read more!

Was an OK read, 2/3 of the way through I was wondering where it was going still. Not sure the first 2/3 related that much to the events of the last 1/3 or what I got out of the book.
