A great American novel! Epic. Winner of the 1972 Pulitzer Prize, Angel of Repose follows the Ward family from the late 1800s to San Francisco in the 1960s as they make their life in the American West. Stegner writes intimately about history, managing to convey both the harsh realities of frontier life with the romanticism that this period holds for many. A compelling and deep read.
A riveting memoir about growing up amid drama and dysfunction - poignant, hilarious and captivating.
