Overview

Marvelous prose...McNamer's book is full of it, and full too of an unwavering commitment to, and wonder at, humanity. Add to those its grand story, its fine sense of irony and humor, its emotional accuracy, and One Sweet Quarrel becomes one sweet - and unforgettable - novel. - New York Times Book Review Leaving behind their provincial Midwestern upbringing, the Malone siblings go their separate ways to test their mettle in the big, beckoning world of America's dawning Jazz Age. While Jerry heads west to claim a homestead and join the great oil rush, Daisy sets her sights on the glamorous life of a big city singer in Manhattan. But fate and failing fortunes reunite them in tiny Shelby, Montana - and draw them into the 1923 Dempsey-Gibbons World Heavyweight Championship, the faltering town's grand scheme to save itself from economic ruin.With the help of a Noah's Ark-sized arena, an underground hero, heavyweight champ Jack Dempsey, and a mountain of money at stake, boxing history - and legendary memories - will be made. And for a moment as fleeting and spectacular as Halley's Comet, these American dreamers will savor the sweet taste of an extraordinary life.Book Lust Rediscoveries is a series devoted to reprinting some of the best (and now out of print) novels originally published from 1960 to 2000. Each book is personally selected by NPR commentator and Book Lust author Nancy Pearl and includes an introduction by her, as well as discussion questions for book groups and a list of recommended further reading.
