Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

In this moving sequel to "Big Rock Candy Mountain", Bruce Mason returns to Salt Lake City for a family funeral and instead encounters the ghosts of his past.

Stacie Clary, January 2, 2011 (view all comments by Stacie Clary)
A wonderful and realistic novel about being pulled back reluctantly into memories of adolescence, acknowledging how those experiences formed the adult, and gaining some peace with the past. At times the story is painful and the reader is never 100% sure if the memories are "real." Yet, that is what makes the story realistic and can't help but prompt readers into considering what memories they may be resisting and what impacted the choices they have made.
