Summary

John Fist is a talented overachiever who has become restless and bored in his second year at Sheldon, an elite New England college. He is losing motivation, increasingly finding it “too far to walk” to his philosophy class across campus. So when the devil in sophomore’s clothing (a fellow student named Chum Breed) offers him all the most intense experiences of the modern world in exchange for a twenty-six-week lease on his soul, Fist eagerly signs up. The anticipated adventures, however, turn out not to be quite what he had bargained for. Pulitzer Prize–winner John Hersey’s Too Far to Walk is a bracing updating of the classic Faust legend, a compelling coming-of-age novel, and a masterful work of mid-century fiction.
