"The Angle of Repose", by Wallace Stegner

We will be discussing "The Angle of Repose", by Wallace Stegner.  The Formal Discussion will begin at 7:30.

(From Amazon:) Stegner’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of personal, historical, and geographic discovery

Confined to a wheelchair, retired historian Lyman Ward sets out to write his grandparents' remarkable story, chronicling their days spent carving civilization into the surface of America's western frontier. But his research reveals even more about his own life than he's willing to admit. What emerges is an enthralling portrait of four generations in the life of an American family.

"Cause for celebration . . . A superb novel with an amplitude of scale and richness of detail altogether uncommon in contemporary fiction." —The Atlantic Monthly

"Brilliant . . . Two stories, past and present, merge to produce what important fiction must: a sense of the enchantment of life." —Los Angeles Times

    Sorry, everyone, I got a last-minute rush job assignment for Monday night, coincidental with our meetup, and have to do it instead. I have made reservations for the downstairs room as usual, under "the Jersey City Book Club". I hope it is a great discussion and meetup and will look forward to next month's.
