Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Edward Herrmann is perhaps best known to younger audiences as kindly, patrician Richard Gilmore on the television series Gilmore Girls. Here, Herrmann uses his same elegant persona to amplify and underscore the bittersweet nuance of Stegner's novel about a retired man who travels to his mother's Danish hometown. There are hidden reserves of frustration and displeasure in Stegner's tale, and Herrmann aptly conveys these emotions with short, sharp bursts of dialogue matched with longer, more drawn-out ellipses of exposition. He even manages a serviceable Danish accent to top off his flawless performance." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

A retired literary agent revisits his journals from a trip he took to his mother's birthplace some years before. His memories reveal that he has been less of a mere spectator through life than he had thought.
