Published in 1937, Remembering Laughter launched the Pulitzer Prize-winning Stegner's career as a novelist. The plot follows a love triangle among a farmer, his wife, and her sister, which becomes even more disastrous when the sister becomes pregnant. A Shooting Star also deals with marital infidelity as protagonist Sabrina Castro seeks the meaning of love outside the arms of her husband (LJ 4/15/61).

"Adroit and moving . . . has the quality of a rueful, ironic legend"
The New York Times
"There is no use to mention the assurance and calm that Mr. Stegner brings to his first bookit has to be read to be believed."
"I thought Remembering Laughter a perfect little novel, clean, swift and assured, and I can still feel the weight of the disaster in it."
