Some brief overview of book

Ageing Larry Cook announces his intention to turn over his 1,000-acre farm-one of the largest in Zebulon County, Iowa-to his three daughters, Caroline, Ginny and Rose. A man of harsh sensibilities, he carves Caroline out of the deal because she has the nerve to be less than enthusiastic about her father's generosity. While Larry Cook deteriorates into a pathetic drunk, his daughters are left to cope with the often grim realities of life on a family farm-from battering husbands to cut-throat lenders.

In this winner of the US 1991 National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction, Smiley captures the essence of such a life with stark, painful detail. -Amazon.com.
