From the Publisher:
In electrifying prose and with a rare generosity of feeling, this dramatic and piercing debut novel tells the story of the fractured lives of three generations of one Southern family. "Magnificent . . . brims with characters who seem truer than life."--Kaye Gibbons.The shattered lives of three generations of a Southern family center around Harrison Durrance, a magnetic man who thrives on the danger and heroism of World War II combat but who loses himself, sabotages his career, and brutalizes his family in the peace that follows

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"In a disturbing account of three generations, Shearer's debut uses a series of first-person narratives to trace the disintegration of a southern family's happiness...A confident and daring debut, using the microcosm of this family's fall as an emblem of the American dream gone bad." 12/01/1995

San Francisco Chronicle
"Shearer's language is always lucid, lyrical and to the point. It makes 'The Wonder Book of Air' a pleasure to read."
