9780810150676: The House of Breath

Readers can now rediscover one of William Goyen's most important works in this restoration of the original text. The House of Breath eschews traditional conventions of plot and character presentation. The book is written as an ethereal address to the people and places the narrator remembers from his childhood in a small Texas town. More than a story, it is a meditation on the nature of identity, origins, and memory.

About the Author:

William Goyen was born in Trinity, Texas, served in World War II, and lived much of his life in Taos, New Mexico. He wrote numerous short stories, novels, poems, and plays.

Review:

"The House of Breath is not a novel at all but a sustained evocation of the past, a long search for place and identity, and the meaning of an intense personal experience; an attempt to cleanse the heart of its mysterious burden of guilt. . . . The writing as a whole is disciplined on a high plane, and there are long passages of the best writing, the fullest and richest and most expressive, that I have read in a very long time." --Katherine Anne Porter
