Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is the second volume of A Great Circle, the highly acclaimed Mayfield family trilogy, from one of America's literary treasures.

Though a novel independent from The Surface of Earth, The Source of Light continues the saga of the Mayfield family, here focusing on Hutchins Mayfield, whose desire for self-knowledge removes him from his secure existence as a prep school teacher and takes him on a journey to Oxford and Italy to study and write. Hutchins comes back home for a family crisis but ultimately returns to England, where he achieves a maturity that enables him to cope with commitments, abandonments, and the creation of an honest personal agenda.

In The Source of Light, Reynolds Price combines gravity and buoyancy, a mythic sense of the past with the mysteries of place, to forge an encompassing portrait of the strange and various world one travels through in the quest for self-fulfillment.

About the Author

Reynolds Price is James B. Duke Professor of English at Duke University and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. His many volumes include fiction, poetry, plays, essays, and translations. His work has been published in sixteen languages, and his latest novel, The Promise of Rest, completes the Mayfield family trilogy.
