Hortense, will you please tell us what your objection is? I confess, this thing appeals to me a lot more than hospitals do or some angle on education or the various eleemosynary activities I’m constantly being asked to support-as an outlet for this money that’s piling up, and-. Richard, it also appeals to me, as I said. I’m for it. I’ll be glad to help Dr. Palmer in any way I can. If you want to endow his institute, that’s fine, but I won’t be its den mother, which is what I think you want.

The Institute written late in Cain's literary career shows a man who has run out of steam in his literary efforts. This is another late-career James M. Cain novel and is written in his typical, politically incorrect style. Why is that so here? Well, the premise that Cain is working under is well-worn. Power, sex and philanthropy or some such combination in the corridors of Washington and its environs has been done to death both before and after this 1976 effort. I enjoyed it immensely. Lloyd Palmer Ph. and college professor has a scheme to start an institute and approaches philanthropist Richard Garrett for funding.

After that, it began to fall-or, I could even say, plunge. including a man I won’t name. He was from Georgia and was doing a book on Longstreet, who was briefly Lee’s second in command. That doesn’t sound like anything trouble could grow out of, but what that biography did to me shouldn’t happen to any American citizen who pays taxes and obeys the law. This writer was well known.

I had never read James M Cain before, but am a big movie buff so of course had seen various adaptations of his big three (Postman, Double Indemnity, Mildred Pierce). After seeing HBO's excellent Mildred Pierce, decided to pick up some random Cain, and started this one just because the title was interesting. This was written in the 70s, much later in his career and is a big stinking mess. It reads more like an SCTV parody of noir t What the heck did I just read?
