9780140154412: All the Little Live Things (Contemporary American Fiction)

Joe Allston, the retired literary agent of Stegner's National Book Award-winning novel, The Spectator Bird, returns in this disquieting and keenly observed novel. Scarred by the senseless death of their son and baffled by the engulfing chaos of the 1960s, Allston and his wife, Ruth, have left the coast for a California retreat. And although their new home looks like Eden, it also has serpents: Jim Peck, a messianic exponent of drugs, yoga, and sex; and Marian Catlin, an attractive young woman whose otherworldly innocence is far more appealing—and far more dangerous.

About the Author:

WALLACE STEGNER (1909-1993) was the author of many books of fiction and nonfiction, including the National Book Award-winning The Spectator Bird (1976) and Crossing to Safety. Angle of Repose won the Pulitzer Prize in 1972. An American historian, novelist, short-story writer, and environmentalist, Wallace Stegner is often called ''The Dean of Western Writers.''

Review:

"Timely and timeless . . . Will hold any reader to its last haunting page."
Chicago Tribune

"A novel of crackling vividness"
The New York Times Book Review

"The Great Gastby captures the twenties and yet transcends them. All the Little Live Things is a comparable achievement for the sixties. . . . Stegner's craft is here at an apex."
Virginia Quarterly Review
