Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is a stunning collection of five stories and a novella that confirms Jane Smiley's place as one of our most gifted writers. In The Age of Grief, a man meditates on the vagaries of love and family life. Certain that his wife has fallen in love with someone else — and been spurned by him — he tries to recover the good-humored, matter-of-fact heart of the mmarriage where he can keep her from knowing of his own sorrow.Clear and elegant, and filled with the unmistakable sound of real people going about the business — and pleasure — of real life, The Age of Grief is a true cause for celebration.

Review:

"Disturbing yet recognizable characters and Smiley's knack for dialogue and the telling detail make these narratives memorable." Library Journal

Review:

"This is a book that will last and last." The Philadelphia Inquirer
