Since 2013



Angle of Repose

Author : Stegner, Wallace


Stegner’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of personal, historical, and geographic discovery

Confined to a wheelchair, retired historian Lyman Ward sets out to write his grandparents’ remarkable story, chronicling their days spent carving civilization into the surface of America’s western frontier. But his research reveals even more about his own life than he’s willing to admit. What emerges is an enthralling portrait of four generations in the life of an American family. “Cause for celebration . . . A superb novel with an amplitude of scale and richness of detail altogether uncommon in contemporary fiction.” — The Atlantic Monthly

“Brilliant . . . Two stories, past and present, merge to produce what important fiction a sense of the enchantment of life.” — Los Angeles Times
