brilliant novel, Pulitzer Prize–winning and bestselling author Jane Smiley
delves into the domestic drama of the Robison family. While seventy-seven-year-old
Ike Robison is dying in his bedroom upstairs, his wife defends the citadel of
their marriage against an ill-considered, albeit loving, invasion by their
three middle-aged daughters and their twenty-three-year-old granddaughter.
Amply fulfilling the expectations raised by Smiley’s other celebrated works, At
Paradise Gate is a compelling, gracefully wrought portrait of
inter-generational strife and family survival. Download and start listening now!
