Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Award Winner, 1985 "This fine first novel courts comparison with Willa Cather's . . . O Pioneers! But there is a big difference, since O Pioneers! . . . is about beginnings, while Leaving the Land is, sadly and disturbingly, about endings. It shows family farming giving way to corporate farming and agribusiness. . . . Marge (Hogan) has character, which is probably not inheritable. It is a rare commodity in modern novels."-New York Times Book Review. The reputation of Leaving the Land has grown steadily since its first publication in 1984. It was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the Robert F. Kennedy Award and was an ALA Notable book in 1984. Douglas Unger, a professor of English at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, is also the author of El Yanqui and The Turkey War, and, most recently, Voices from Silence: A Novel of Repression and Terror in Argentina.
