Beschreibung

Although Tom Scanlon would just as soon spend it alone, his ninetieth birthday becomes the occasion for a family gathering in the Midwestern town of Lone Tree. The unlikely celebrants take this opportunity to reconceive their visions of past, future, and family in their own grotesque and ultimately liberating ways. "Ceremony in Lone Tree" is a spare and beautiful work by one of America's great postwar authors.

Portrait

Wright Morris (1910-98) wrote thirty-three books, including The Home Place (Nebraska 1998), Plains Song (Nebraska 2000), and Field of Vision, which won the National Book Award. Keith Botsford is coeditor, with Saul Bellow, of The Republic of Letters. He has translated several books, among them Silvio D'Arzo's A Winter's Journal.

Pressestimmen

"A modern classic... Not the least of this remarkable novel is the capturing of that special Midwestern attitude when passion erupts into horrendous crime in the 'normal' course of life."--Publishers Weekly. "There can be no doubt, I think, that Wright Morris is one of our best novelists... There is a central event in Ceremony in Lone Tree toward which all the action and digression alike move with great force... Most important of all, the elements of symbolic theme which appear throughout the story are all employed with brilliance and economy to pull together various scattered events into a dense moment in the history of a few people, of Nebraska, and of the Western World."--Yale Review.
