#1431 - Jane Smiley

Novelist Jane Smiley is in the middle of her Last Hundred Yearstrilogy about the Langdon family.

While last year’s Some Luck followed the Langdon family through the depression, her new novel, Early Warning, tells their story as the country moves into the Cold War, through the social and sexual revolutions of the 1960s and ’70s and into the materialism of the ’80s.
