's review
Jul 17, 10

Read in July, 2010

I liked it all right. I didn't enjoy the writing (i.e. how pretty the prose was) as much as I thought I would after having read and really enjoyed Stegner's collected letters. But I do enjoy the precision with which he writes. And the romance of this story was unconventional and moving. "Finally," it's a nice time capsule of competing ideologies from the decade in which is was written (the 60s, California).

"As for the bomb, I'm sick of the thing, hanging up there on its thread. It's no different from what's always hung there."
