On The Night Plain

Out of stock. Usually delivers within 4 weeks.


From the critically acclaimed author of The Light of Falling Stars and The Funnies, this is a beautifully written story about a man who reluctantly accepts his birthright in a sheep-ranching family torn apart by tragedy. Hoping to make a new life for himself after the Second World War, and to escape the guilt he feels over the death of a brother who fought and died in his place, Grant Person abandons his family's ranch on the Great Plains for a fishing boat on the Atlantic. But the death of his mother three years later draws him back to the nearly deserted ranch. In spare, poetic prose, J. Robert Lennon explores the complications of love and work; loyalty to family, the land and one's own desires; and the nature of solitude.
