Editorial Reviews

Review

“Opening with the 1953 funeral of patriarch Walter, Smiley follows the Langdon family introduced in Some Luck through its second and third generations . . . Smiley’s narrative web snares major postwar social changes [with] nicely specific details. Each of the large cast of characters has sharply individualized traits, and they are unfailingly interesting. The surprise appearance of a hitherto unsuspected relative reminds us [that] life and love are never perfect—they simply are. Strong storytelling will keep readers looking forward to the promised third volume.” —Kirkus

“Smiley has a big cast to wrangle in the second, atom-and-adultery-haunted volume of the ‘Last Hundred Years’ trilogy. Covering 1953 to 1986 at a clip of one year per chapter, the focus here is the Cold War and its fallout . . . Smiley keeps you reading; she is as deft as ever at conveying the ways in which a family develops.” —Publishers Weekly
