Über diesen Titel


[Library Edition Audiobook CD in Vinyl case.]

Winner of the National Book Award.

[Read by Edward Herrmann]

Joe Allston is a retired literary agent who is, in his own words, ''killing time before time gets around to killing me.'' His parents and his only son are long dead, leaving him with neither ancestors nor descendants, tradition nor ties. His job, trafficking the talent of others, had not been his choice. He passes through life as a spectator.

A postcard from a friend causes him to return to the journals of a trip he had taken years before, a journey to his mother's birthplace, where he'd sought a link with the past. The memories of that trip, both grotesque and poignant, move through layers of time and meaning and reveal that Joe Allston isn't quite spectator enough.

WALLACE STEGNER (1903-1993) was the author of many books of fiction and nonfiction, including the National Book Award-winning The Spectator Bird (1976) and Crossing to Safety. Angle of Repose won the Pulitzer Prize in 1972.
