Description

These exquisite twin novellas chronicle the difficult choices that reshape the lives of two very different families. In Ordinary Love, Smiley focuses on a woman’s infidelity and the lasting, indelible effects it leaves on her children long after her departure. Good Will portrays a father who realizes how his son has been affected by his decision to lead a counterculture life and move his family to a farm. As both stories unfold, Smiley gracefully raises the questions that confront all families with the characteristic style and insight that has marked all of her work.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 01, 1990 – Two novellas demonstrate the price children often pay for their parents' mistakes: in Ordinary Love , a father divides his family after his wife announces her extramarital affair, while in Good Will a boy is the victim of his father's obsession to maintain an exaggeratedly simple, self-sufficient lifestyle. ``Wise, powerful and resonantly memorable, these stories are sure to be classics,'' applauded PW .
