Overview
Majestic . . . epic . . . vital . . . a necessary piece in a uniquely American mosaic. "The New York Times Book Review"
Right from the start of this engrossing family saga, you know that you re in the hands of a storyteller who knows just where he s going. . . . You can hear echoes of Faulkner and Cormac McCarthy in Lent s prose. But the presiding geniuses of this dark novel s painterly, poetic scenes are Robert Frost and the artist Winslow Homer . . . flint-eyed Yankees who never saw a paradise that didn t have a snake. "Newsweek"
A national bestseller and a "New York Times" notable book, now in Grove Press paperback for the first time, "In the Fall" is a richly layered epic that conjures the history of three generations of an American family and the dark secrets that blister at its core. At the close of the Civil War, Norman Pelham, son of a Vermont farmer, is found wounded by Leah, an escaped slave harboring a devastating secret. The two become lovers as Leah nurses Norman back to health, and journey north together as man and wife. Their son forsakes the family for the anonymous world of bootlegging and nightclubs, but long-buried truths come to light when their grandson is driven to retrace his history and disentangle his complicated inheritance. Spanning the post-Civil War era to the edge of the Great Depression, "In the Fall" is a fierce, gripping vision of an American landscape and history, and an unforgettable portrait of an American family.
A stunning success . . . Builds like a thunderstorm coming over the horizon. "The Christian Science Monitor"
