His nonfiction includes The Sound of Mountain Water, The Uneasy Chair: A Biography of Bernard DeVoto, and Where the Bluebird Sings to the Lemonade Springs: Living and Writing in the West. Three of his short stories won O. Henry Prizes, and in 1980 he received the Robert Kirsch Award from the Los Angeles Times for his lifetime literary achievements.Review:
"Wonderful . . . one comes out aware of universal human feelings that have nothing to do with time."
—The Christian Science Monitor
"This is Stegner's The Sound and the Fury. Like the Faulkner novel, Recapitulation is abook about time and its multiplicity of meanings in human experience, about the history of a family and its decline . . ."
—Jackson J. Benson, author of Wallace Stegner: His Life and Work
