Recapitulation
Recapitulation | Wallace Stegner
3 posts | 2 read | 3 to read
In Recapitulation, by National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize winner Wallace Stegner, the protagonist of his classic novel Big Rock Candy Mountain returns reluctantly to the Salt Lake City of his birth for the funeral of an auntthe last link to his familys history, and his own. Now in his sixties, even after a successful diplomatic career among other achievements that he knows derived from his early life in this place, Bruce Mason cannot help but reflect on the childhood misery caused by those same events. Intimate, reflective, even meditative, Recapitulation gives us what we are seldom offered, a chance to reconnect with a beloved character, to see who he became, and the opportunity to understand his earlier incarnation through his own eyes.
