Author Info
Jane Smiley
An only child, Jane Smiley grew up outside St. Louis with her mother and grandmother; her father deserted the family when she was a year old. Her mother was a newspaper editor. Smiley determined from a very early age that she would become a fiction writer. She graduated from Vassar in 1971 and also has an M.F.A. and a Ph.D. from the University of Iowa. For many years, she taught at Iowa State. Her first novel was published in 1980. She has been married three times.
Praise
"It's hard to say which is more surprising: that Jetta Carleton's THE MOONFLOWER VINE is her first novel, that it's her only published novel -- or that it's essentially been forgotten....[T]he writing...captures both the beauty of the natural world and the complexities of human emotion."
From the Publisher
Editors Note A timeless American classic rediscovered—an unforgettable saga of a heartland family On a farm in western Missouri during the first half of the twentieth century, Matthew and Callie Soames create a life for themselves and raise four headstrong daughters. Jessica will break their hearts. Leonie will fall in love with the wrong man. Mary Jo will escape to New York. And wild child Mathy's fate will be the family's greatest tragedy. Over the decades they will love, deceive, comfort, forgive—and, ultimately, they will come to cherish all the more fiercely the bonds of love that hold the family together.
