Maybe, like me, you've seen Angle of Repose sitting on the shelf for so many years that it's faded into the scenery. But that is one of the reasons this book is so great. It may not LEAP off the shelf but rather it burrows, warm and soft, into your soul as it quietly tells it's story. And oh, what a story it is! Thoughtful, engaging, sad, uplifting, and so, so very readable. Do yourself a favor and stop ignoring this quiet piece of classic American literature and find out for yourself why this book won the Pulitzer and continues to show up on "best of" lists year after year.
