I loved this book. Head over heels in love with this book - the writing is absolutely beautiful and I think it provides apt commentary on both the hippy crowd of the 60's as well as their counterparts. I loved that this book told such a large story through the inanities of daily life.
Wallace Stegner is a master of character development. This title tends to be a bit dated, set in the sixties, but the conflict between generations is timeless. Stegner brings you close to the characters, and the plot develops subtly in the background. The denouement is moving, dark and unexpected. This is one of those reads that ended too soon and left me thinking for weeks.
Note that this is a sequel to "The Spectator Bird", with the same main couple, but can stand alone.
Recommended for Californians, children of the sixties and Stegner fans.
