Mr. Paul Russell's well written exploration of growing up, growing old, marriage, morality, situational ethics, friendship, love and passion is one of the best reads I've enjoyed. The prose is somewhat dense at times, but the characters are nicely three dimensional and the plot is intriguing. It's sometimes harrowing but always humanely presented.

Paul Russell went on to win the Ferro-Grumley Award for The Coming Storm in 2000 (and for a second time in 2012 for The Unreal Life of Sergey Nabokov, a much different novel that marks the true skill and depth of this remarkable writer). I was a bit leery about reading this as I kept on thinking of a gay version of Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. However, Russell’s classically simple story of a I am amazed at how topical and incendiary this novel remains 15 years after its publication in 1999.

Praise for The Coming Storm. Disaster looms over the characters in Russell's (Sea of Tranquillity) accomplished fourth novel, as repressed and expressed sexualities clash on the sedate campus of a modern-day boys' prep school in upstate New York.

The Coming Storm is a beautifully written quartet of differing voices each encompassing the different ages of gay life

Set against the backdrop of a traditional boys' school in upstate New York, The Coming Storm is a delicately and brilliantly rendered tale that reveals the most closely held secrets of the human heart. Russell's award-winning novel is the story of four interlocking lives - Louis Tremper, the headmaster at the Forge School; his wife Claire; Tracey Parker, a 25-year old gay man and recently hired teacher at the Forge School; and Noah Lathrop III, a troubled student; all of whom struggle with their own inner demons, desires, and conflicted loyalties. When Tracey and Noah become involved in an illicit relationship, dark incidents from the school's past begin colliding with the current growing confusion that all of them must face. Compelling and poignant, this is the finest work yet from one of best contemporary American novelists.

Ernest Hemingway said of words that you had to "shoot the bastards." Paul Russell needs to learn either to take aim or to find a better editor. There's a dictum in any beginning creative writing class: don't say it; show it. Russell has too much of saying and finally it mutes the effect of his novel. This is a shame because the novel has a powerful situation with important issues. But his characters come off as stereotypes--the tweedy headmaster, the smart and vibrantly good looking gay teacher, the troubled innocence of a student with overpowering needs, his tough father, rich and unfeeling, one feels in the presence of cartoon cutouts. So Russell has a good and important story, but the writing itself gets in the way.

Mr. Paul Russell's well written exploration of growing up, growing old, marriage, morality, situational ethics, friendship, love and passion is one of the best reads I've enjoyed. The prose is somewhat dense at times, but the characters are nicely three dimensional and the plot is intriguing. It's sometimes harrowing but always humanely presented. The story hinges on a ephebophile's affair with an adolescent. These days, with so much knowledge about child molestation and illegal teacher underage student affairs, this might turn off a reader or two, but Mr Russell does a good job of showing the various angles such a relationship can have. If I have a complaint it's that towards the end certain plot maneuvers seem a little too convenient, but the sympathy for all the characters keeps the interest up.

This book is not for the crowd who believe sexual attraction begins at 21, 'or something like that.' If one looks at modern advertising as a port hole into contemporary culture one knows sexual attraction has early roots and a long after life. That said, as usual Paul Russell tells a very believable tale from multiple points of view. Everybody gets to make their case and the reader gets to choose whom is the bad guy. Or maybe just people developing at differing speeds. I like the way Russell lets just a little bit out at a time then turns down another 'developing story' as they say on 'the TeeVee.' The reader sees the whole storm from a thought in a boy's head or, perhaps it was his dream, to the quiet after the storm. What is next is left up to the reader. I have been on a Paul Russell diet of late and I like his cooking.

The author is quite blatantly influenced by "A Separate Peace" - enough so to mention it quite a few times in the text of this novel.
While I did enjoy the book, I felt in parts that the writing was tedious - must every thought and every action of every character be pondered and analyzed to the death? I ended up skipping over many paragraphs just because I didn't want to read a 100-word character reaction to another character saying something as innane as "That's odd." There are quite a few characters in the book that seem to be headed towards full development (Libby, Claire, etc) then suddenly drop off to nowhere, leaving their personal stories incomplete. That aside, the story is good and the words vibrant.
The story, which primarily revolves around a troubled 15 yr old student falls in love with his 25 year old teacher, is interesting.. you can feel the aching emotion of the characters embroiled in a relationship that is both illicit and doomed to fail. How do you walk away from loving someone you aren't supposed to love?
All in all, Mr. Russell is a good storyteller.. a few too many run-on plot developments (that go nowhere) but a vivid imagination and a gift for telling a story so completely that you feel as if you are in the world he's painted.

A beautiful story that lingers long after the last page is read. The characters are engaging, the plot is plausible and the dialogue is honest and fresh. Russell's observations on the complexity of human relationships and the various types of heartbreak that are inevitable with love are perceptive and insightful. It is these qualities that make his writing stand apart from his fellow authors covering similar terrain.
