Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Not since Reynolds Price's award-winning, bestselling novel Kate Vaiden has he told a woman's story in her own voice. Roxanna Slade is this woman.

Roxanna begins her story on her twentieth birthday — a day that introduces her to the harsh realities of adulthood and changes the course of her life forever. From this day on, Roxanna is quick to share with the reader the intimate details of ninety years of life in North Carolina. Her beguiling tale is one that boldly reflects the high and low moments in the development of the modern South and the nation as well as the inner strength of a woman possessed of a piercingly clear vision, forthright hungers and immense vitality.

About the Author

Reynolds Price (1933-2011) was born in Macon, North Carolina. Educated at Duke University and, as a Rhodes Scholar, at Merton College, Oxford University, he taught at Duke beginning in 1958 and was the James B. Duke Professor of English at the time of his death. His first short stories, and many later ones, are published in his Collected Stories. A Long and Happy Life was published in 1962 and won the William Faulkner Award for a best first novel. Kate Vaiden was published in 1986 and won the National Book Critics Circle Award. The Good Priest's Son in 2005 was his fourteenth novel. Among his thirty-seven volumes are further collections of fiction, poetry, plays, essays, and translations. Price is a member of both the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and his work has been translated into seventeen languages.

I was completely lost in this book for days! The writing is by far the best I have seen in years. Now I am on a quest for more Reynolds Price. I highly recommend this great read.

FANTASTIC!!!!!! I feel as though I just spent 50 or 60 yrs in rural North Carolina with Roxanna Slade and her family. Such beautiful writing...hard to compare to anyone else I have read lately. Highly recommended, I did not want this book to end. I will be on the look out for more Reynolds Price right away...can't get enough of his fabulous prose.
