9780140252408: Remembering Laughter

Margaret Stuart, the proud wife of a prosperous Iowa farmer, sets high standards for herself and others. Happy in her marriage, she tries to look the other way when her genial husband, Alec, takes to the bottle. When Elspeth, Margaret's sister, comes to live with them, the young woman is immediately captivated by the beauty and vitality of the farm, and by the affection she receives from those around her. But as summer turns into fall, and the friendship between Alec and Elspeth deepens, Margaret finds her spirit tested by a series of events that seem as cruel and inevitable as the endless prairie winters.

Long out of print, Remebering Laughter (1937) marked Wallace Stegner's brilliant literary debut.

About the Author:

WALLACE STEGNER (1909-1993) wrote many books of fiction and nonfiction, including Crossing to Safety and the National Book Award-winning The Spectator Bird. Angle of Repose won the Pulitzer Prize in 1972.

From Library Journal:

Published in 1937, Remembering Laughter launched the Pulitzer Prize-winning Stegner's career as a novelist. The plot follows a love triangle among a farmer, his wife, and her sister, which becomes even more disastrous when the sister becomes pregnant. A Shooting Star also deals with marital infidelity as protagonist Sabrina Castro seeks the meaning of love outside the arms of her husband (LJ 4/15/61).
