Summary
The unraveling of a four generation farm and its family structure is emotionally told in this modern-day KING LEAR.
Critique
Very well-written. One to read and think about. Well-drawn characters. Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, 1992. Excellent! Highly recommend. A more realistic look at small town/rural life than most. Devastating. A wonderfully complex tale of family relations.
