GOLDEN AGE

A lot can happen in 100 years, as Jane Smiley has shown to dazzling effect in the first two novels of her critically acclaimed Last Hundred Years trilogy. When Golden Age opens in 1987, the next generation of Langdons face economic, social, cultural, and political challenges unlike anything their ancestors had encountered before. Richie and Michael, the rivalrous twin sons of World War II hero Frank, work in the high-stakes worlds of government and finance in Washington, D.C. and in New York City; they soon realize their fiercest enemies are often those closest to home. Charlie, the innocent young man revealed in Early Warning as an unknown Langdon son, adds joy to the family but pays a devastating price in America's worst modern tragedy. Joe's grandson Guthrie is deployed with the army to Iraq, leaving the farm back in Iowa--ever the heart of this enthralling saga--in the hands of his younger sister, Felicity. She's made it her mission to preserve our planet, including for the sake of the family land she loves. But the farm's once rich and abundant soil is now doubly imperiled, not only by erosion from generations of use, but by the extremes of climate change. Taking us from the power-brokering 1980s and the scandal-ridden '90s straight into the future, Golden Age combines intimate drama and emotional suspense with a full command of history, including the times we are living through right now. It brings to a magnificent conclusion the century-long portrait of a single remarkable family, even as it marks a crowning literary achievement in the career of a master of American storytelling.
