Summary
Elegantly repackaged and reissued to coincide with the release of Smiley's latest novel, "At Paradise Gate" is a brilliant novel that delves into the domestic drama of an ordinary American family. While Ike Robinson lays dying, his wife is forced to defend their marriage against an ill-considered, albeit loving invasion by their three middle-aged daughters
Summary
While seventy-seven-year-old Ike Robison is on his deathbed, three generations of women--his wife, Anna, three middle-aged daughters, and granddaughter--reconcile their personal and family histories and claim their birthrights
