Frederick Busch was an American writer. Posts About Frederick Busch. lt;p
Prolific American novelist with a flair for experiment and character. The Mutual Friend (1978) was told, convincingly enough, by associates of Charles Dickens, as much a hero for Busch as Herman Melville (inspiration for The Night Inspector, 1999). Rounds (1979) featured a doctor whose "feet are long and the leather heels of his cardovan brogues sound like pony's hooves when he walks in echoing halls": a Dickensian image alleviating a novel which, burdened by medical detail, lacks the verve of Closing Arguments (1991).
