A Place To Come To Author:Robert Penn Warren No bare-bones summary can do justice to the excitement, complexity and resonance of this powerful novel, to its many strong characters and their intricate relationships with each other, or to its unifying narrative drive, which never falters.
This is without a doubt the most powerful novel that I have ever read. The story line is intricate, with the author providing deep insight into his characters. I have loaned this book to many people over the years since 1977 and not one managed to read the book without considerable tears. People are much more familiar with Warren's All the King's Men, but this is one novel that demands to be read again and again.
