Über diesen Titel:


A Long Day's Dying is a mid-twentieth-century Jamesian novel that foreshadows many of the themes in Mr. Buechner's later writing—faith, trust, and the complex relations of family and friends. The story follows Tristram Bone, a rotund man of wealth and "organized leisure" but a failure with women, and Elizabeth Poor, a rich, charming, and beautiful widow and Bone's unrequited love interest, through a series of encounters with friends and family, affairs real and imagined, gossip, jealousy, and innuendo. We also meet Bone's servant Emma and his pet monkey Simon; the novelist George Motley; the arrogant and seductive academic Paul Steitler, Elizabeth's naïve son Lee, and her omniscient mother Maroo.

Vom Verlag: In 1950 Frederick Buechner published his first novel, A LONG DAY'S DYING, to great acclaim. In the intervening 53 years he has written more than a dozen novels that have encompassed themes such as politics, myth, fairy tale, theology, and Shakespeare. He has been runner-up for the Pulitzer Prize, nominated for the National Book Award, and has been honored by and is a member of the American Academy of Arts & Letters. Out of print for more than 40 years, A LONG DAY'S DYING is once again available to a new generation of readers who have discovered Mr. Buechner's work.

Brook Street Press is honored to reissue A LONG DAY'S DYING. It will be of great interest to those who have eagerly read Mr. Buechner's novels; they will now have the chance to experience how this successful and beloved author began his writing career.
