About this title

Synopsis:

"A writer good enough to restore your faith in fiction."
THE NEW YORK TIMES
It is only a week in the life of a 35-year old bachelor school teacher in a small Minnesota town. But it is an extraodinary week, filled with the poetry of living, the sweetness of expectation, and the glory of surprise that can change a life forever....
"Absolutely smashing....An altogether successful work, witty, intelligent, compassionate."
THE CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER

From the Author:

How I wrote "Staggerford."
In 1975, after four or five years of writing short stories, I took a sabbatical leave from my teaching job at Brainerd (Minnesota) Community College to see if I could write a novel. After 20 years of teaching in high schools and colleges,I was so full of my subject that the story came pouring out of me at high speed, and the book was the work of five months. All of my subsequent novels have taken me at least two years. I have just mailed off to my publisher a short book called 'A Staggerford Journal' which is an account, from my journals of that era, of the writing of this novel.
