Description

Scenes are the trees and trees make the forest. Iconic scenes deep­en and broaden the reader's understanding of our national psychology, our appetite for myth, our ideological bearings. Encompassing contradiction, ambiguity, poetic intensity, and emotional diversity, they stand out like illuminated signs in the under- and overgrowth to guide the reader willing to brave the vast wilderness of American fic­tion in order to gain insight into American character and culture.
