The second novel by the Pulitzer Prize winning author of A Thousand Acres. Jane Smiley is known for her exceptionally wide-ranging talent and keen takes on everyday life. Her novel A Thousand Acres was made into a critically acclaimed motion picture starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Jessica Lange, and her new novel, The All-True Travels and Adventures of Lidie Newton, is set to be published in April by Knopf. Elegantly repackaged and reissued to coincide with the release of Smiley's latest offering, At Paradise Gate is a brilliant novel that delves into the domestic drama of an ordinary American family. While Ike Robinson lays dying, his wife is forced to defend the citadel of their marriage against an ill-considered, albeit loving invasion by their three middle-aged daughters. Amply fulfilling the expectations raised by Smiley's other celebrated works, At Paradise Gate is an honest, moving, quietly splendid (Kirkus Reviews) portrait of family survival.
