My partner in bliss is none other than this man: Wallace Stegner! He is my constant companion, except when I need quiet so that I can concentrate - and then he is good about the silence I require. My Wallace is a fabulous conversationalist, he never argues, he paints the most beautiful pictures with words, and he writes a mean story! My friend and mentor Jan Myers Newbury recommended his book, "Angle of Repose", to me, and I am almost spellbound by it. Stegner was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for this novel in 1971, and I can understand why. He is a new author to me, and in my naivety I was afraid that he might have written only this one novel, but I am so relieved to learn that he has penned many more works, which will keep me company over the next few months. Ah: bliss!
Do you know my man? Have you read any of his books? Do you love him as I do?
