"[James Agee''s words] are so indelibly etched someplace inside of me that I couldn''t reach to rub them out even if I wanted to. And I never want to."
-Steve Earle, from the Introduction

"Wonderfully alive." --The New Yorker

"A Death in the Family remains one of the most beautifully written of all American novels. James Agee's talent was both luxuriant and precise, and the opening sequence is still one of the finest prose poems in our language. He is one of those writers who cause other writers to shiver with pure pleasure." --Pat Conroy

"People I know who read A Death in the Family forty years ago still talk about it. So do I. It is a great book, and I'm happy to see it done anew." --Andre Dubus

"For as long as fiction is read, James Agee's A Death in the Family stands as an American masterpiece. There is no stronger, more moving document in our literature than this account of a father's sudden death in the early years of our century. Here are the full spectrum of emotion and resonance, the tensile, perfectly nuanced language, the prayerful inquiry into identity itself, and characters so perfectly rounded that they exist in every specificity of inquiry, acute awareness, dumb love, and sensual arrest. This book has been my Bible; may it bless new generations of readers." --Jayne Anne Phillips

Reseña del editor:

The classic American novel, re-published for the 100th anniversary of James Agee's birth

Published in 1957, two years after its author's death at the age of forty-five, A Death in the Family remains a near-perfect work of art, an autobiographical novel that contains one of the most evocative depictions of loss and grief ever written. As Jay Follet hurries back to his home in Knoxville, Tennessee, he is killed in a car accident - a tragedy that destroys not only a life, but also the domestic happiness and contentment of a young family. A novel of great courage, lyric force, and powerful emotion,A Death in the Family is a masterpiece of American literature.
