9780140266733: Recapitulation

The moving sequel to the bestselling Big Rock Candy Mountain.

Bruce Mason returns to Salt Lake City not for his aunt's funeral, but to encounter after forty-five years the place he fled in bitterness. A successful statesman and diplomat, Mason had buried his awkward and lonely childhood, sealed himself off from the thrills and torments of adolescence to become a figure who commanded international respect.

But the realities of the present recede in the face of the ghosts of his past. As he makes the perfunctory arrangements for the funeral, we enter with him on an intensely personal and painful inner pilgrimage: we meet the father who darkened his childhood, the mother whose support was both redeeming and embarrassing, the friend who drew him into the respectable world of which he so craved to be a part, and the woman he nearly married. In this profoundly moving book Stegner has drawn an intimate portrait of a man understanding how his life has been shaped by experiences seemingly remote and inconsequential.

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.

Review:

"Wonderful . . . one comes out aware of universal human feelings that have nothing to do with time."
The Christian Science Monitor

"This is Stegner's The Sound and the Fury. Like the Faulkner novel, Recapitulation is abook about time and its multiplicity of meanings in human experience, about the history of a family and its decline . . ."
—Jackson J. Benson, author of Wallace Stegner: His Life and Work
