Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The American classic-now available from Penguin for the first time

Published in 1957, two years after its author's death at the age of forty-five, A Death in the Family remains a near-perfect work of art, an autobiographical novel that contains one of the most evocative depictions of loss and grief ever written. As Jay Follet hurries back to his home in Knoxville, Tennessee, he is killed in a car accident-a tragedy that destroys not only a life, but also the domestic happiness and contentment of a young family. A novel of great courage, lyric force, and powerful emotion, A Death in the Family is a masterpiece of American literature.

Synopsis:

Agee's portrayal of the sweetness of day-to-day familial relations are powerful and poignant. His masterfully drawn characters take on a haunting reality in this vivid recreation of life — and sudden death.

Synopsis:

Forty-odd years after its original publication, Agee's last novel seems, more than ever, a true American classic. The portrayals of day-to-day family relationships and the effects of a man's sudden, accidental death on his wife and young son are deeply felt, sensitively told, powerful and poignant.
