Overview

In this moving sequel to Big Rock Candy Mountain, Bruce Mason returns to Salt Lake City, not for his aunt's funeral but to encounter after forty-five years the place he fled in bitterness. A successful statesman and diplomat, Mason had buried his awkward and lonely childhood and sealed himself off from the thrills and torments of adolescence to become a figure who commanded international respect. But the realities of the present recede in the face of the ghosts of his past. As he makes the perfunctory arrangements for the funeral, we enter with him on an intensely personal and painful inner pilgrimage, meeting the father who darkened his childhood, the mother whose support was both redeeming and embarrassing, the friend who drew him into the respectable world of which he so craved to be a part, and the woman he nearly married. In this profoundly moving book, Stegner has drawn an intimate portrait of a man understanding how his life has been shaped by experiences seemingly remote and inconsequential.

Reviews

This is Stegner's The Sound and the Fury...A book about time and its multiplicity of meanings in human experience, about the history of a family and its decline. -- Jackson J. Benson, author of Wallace Stegner: His Life and Work Stegner is nothing if not a sturdy guildsman: he makes a book with strong ribs...The scenes, though, of Utah natural beauty are evocative and visual; Bruce's coming-to-terms with his dead, detested father also is effective...[A] quiet, competent work. -- Kirkus Reviews Wonderful...One comes out aware of universal human feelings that have nothing to do with time. -- Christian Science Monitor Recapitulation is rich in the grittier American truths...It has a piece of our pathos at its core. -- New York Times Book Review
