Definition
an energetic style
  • On Christmas Eve, 1964, two American servicemen were killed in Saigon when Viet Cong terrorists bombed the U.S. billets; one week later, on New Year's Eve, Hester threw up—perhaps she upchucked with special verve, because Owen Meany was prompted to take the power of Hester's puking as a sign.
