KPFA Radio 94.1FM Presents Bestselling Novelist Jane Smiley
Hosted by Kris Welch
From the winner of the Pulitzer Prize: the much-anticipated final volume of her acclaimed American trilogy – a richly absorbing new novel that brings the remarkable Langdon family into our present times and beyond. Combining intimate drama, emotional suspense, and a full command of history, Golden Age brings to a magnificent conclusion the century-spanning portrait of this unforgettable family—and the dynamic times in which they’ve loved, lived, and died: a crowning literary achievement from a beloved master of American storytelling.
Jane Smiley is the author of numerous novels, including A Thousand Acres, which was awarded the Pultizer Prize, and most recently, Some Luck and Early Warning, the first volumes of The Last Hundred Years trilogy. She is also the author of five works of nonfiction and a series of books for young adults. A member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, she has received the PEN USA Lifetime Achievement Award for Literature. She lives in Northern California.
