Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This is a book that will last and last."
THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
Here is a stunning collection of five stories and a novella, written in Jane Smiley's clear and elegant prose, and filled with the unmistakable sound of real people going about the business--and pleasure--of real life. In the title novella, "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 what he calls "the ironic middle," the good-humored, matter-of-fact heart of the marriage where he can keep her from knowing of his own sorrow.
