Has anyone read Wallace Stegner's Angle of Repose? I'm pretty sure it's one of my favorite books ever. Not that I've ever read it. Or even own it. But I glanced through it the last two times I was in the used book store, and it just seems like the kind of book I would love.
Yes, I've read it. Well, no, not true. I've read most of it. I really wanted to like it, but the characters just didn't ring true for me. I couldn't engage in the world Stegner was setting up. But I'd say, give it a go, pix. I think Stegner just isn't my kind of writer (I didn't like Crossing to Safety
, either - the only other Stegner I've read); AoR
did win the Pulitzer and people whose tastes in fiction I trust think it's pretty wonderful.
