This Quality Paperback Book Club volume contains three of William Maxwell's greatest works. Here is some information to be found on the back cover, as I have not finished reading it yet.
The first of the three novels deals with the layers of misunderstanding among the members of a family in a small midwestern town in 1912 and was praised by the Boston Globe as being as "near to perfection as it is possible for a novel to be." The second is about a young couple vacationing in France after WWII and is hailed as, for many readers, "the most moving ...novel of Americans abroad." The last one is about a murder on a farm in Illinois in the 1920's.
And--I am adding this some years later--there was something about it that spoiled my interest in finishing it. What that was, I cannot recall at this remove, but the mere fact does tell me that I did not find the book memorable.
