Smiley's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel is the modern retelling of Shakespeare's King Lear. When aging Larry Cook decides to divide his property among his three daughters, his youngest daughter Caroline thinks he is crazy and she is shut out. The turmoil that ensues brings truths to light concerning marriage, loss, abuse and aging. A book that touches us all.
