As befits a top ten inclusion here are ten factors that come to mind 1 A Damn Good Story Lyman Ward is a former professor of history with a bone disease that put him in a wheelchair He moved into his grandparents’ house in California where he’d spent much of his boyhood With a strong personal interest and a research historian’s skills he studied the lives of his grandmother Susan and his grandfather Oliver She was an artist and later a writer transplanted from her genteel life in New York to be with her husband the earnest engineer out West He specialized in big

    Kindle Wallace Stegner ê ê Angle of Repose Kindle Ì Angle of PDF \ angle book, repose kindle, Angle of ebok, Angle of Repose MOBIThis book started out great but uickly got repetitive for me Learning on Wikipedia that Stegner derived with permission large parts of it from real letters published the next year certainly took winds out of my sails Several critics have mentioned that Stegner's version of Mary Hallock Foote diverges considerably from the original a necessity for the author trying to fit his story to her narrative That being said it is impossible not to recognize the talent behind the writing and the clever weaving of the story of the amputee grandson writing about the tribulations of his grandparents while also telling one story of how the West was americanized My favorite bits are probably the dialogs between Susan and Oliver but I found there was an annoying sucking sound as their lives spun like broken records with only slight variations as Oliver drifted from broken promise to broken dream over and over again Both t
