"The Professor's House is arguably Willa Cather's most important novel of the 1920s. Thematically, the book is exceptionally far ranging." Great Plains Quarterly

Leslie Richman, August 29, 2014 (view all comments by Leslie Richman)
The Professor's House is stunning in it's description and insight. Willa Cather is able to set seemingly mundane scenes, then turn perceptions upside down with sharp observations and the subtly cutting wit. I found myself laughing, re-reading, and then laughing again when presented with the characters and their very palpable humanness. St. Peter and his wife, who remind me somewhat of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's couple in Love In The Time Of Cholera, epitomize the dance of a maturing relationship. Their daughters and sons-in-law represent a younger generation's successes and stumbles. This book is a treasure in it's complete summation of dreams and the realities woven within our desires.
