About the Author:
Frederick Busch (1941–2006) was the recipient of many honors, including an American Academy of Arts and Letters Fiction Award, a National Jewish Book Award, and the PEN/Malamud Award. The prolific author of sixteen novels and six collections of short stories, Busch is renowned for his writing’s emotional nuance and minimal, plainspoken style. A native of Brooklyn, New York, he lived most of his life in upstate New York, where he worked for forty years as a professor at Colgate University.
From Library Journal:
Harry, a former journalist and poet, is now an aide to a liberal senator with higher political aspirations. Catherine is the owner of a small-town art gallery and the single parent of two teenaged sons. After 12 years these former lovers come together again when Harry travels to upstate New York to investigate a construction project that may disturb the bones of dead slaves. Since Catherine's current lover is a paving contractor involved in the project, the political conflict soon becomes a very personal one. Busch's treatment of love after 40 is both sensitive and highly entertaining. Through small gestures and brief bits of dialog, he skillfully reveals complex relationships. In the posturing of competing males and the bickering of smart-mouthed adolescents, he also provides much comedy. Among Busch's other highly regarded works is Sometimes I Live in the Country (LJ 5/1/86).
