Description
From Jane Smiley, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel "A Thousand Acres" a pair of novellas chronicling difficult choices that reshape the dynamics of two very different families.
In "Ordinary Love," Smiley focuses on a woman's infidelity and the lasting, indelible effects it leaves on her children long after her departure. "Good Will" describes a father who realizes how his son has been affected by his decision to lead a counterculture life and move his family to a farm. As both stories unfold, Smiley gracefully raises the questions that confront all families with the characteristic style and insight that has marked all of her work.
