Winner of National Book Award for Fiction in 1961, this novel tells the story of an aging author who returns to the site of his childhood in search of his past and serenity, even though his hometown lies deep under a man-made lake. Once there, he finds it is the night before his grandfather's funeral, and although he knows the town and its inhabitants, they do not know him.

About the Author:

Conrad Richter (1890-1968) was awarded the National Book Award for The Waters of Kronos in 1961. He was also awarded the Pulitzer Prize for The Town, the last volume in a trilogy about frontier life in Ohio, in 1951.

Review:

The Waters of Kronos is an enchanted book. It reminds us anew of the magic which the printed page may hold, what we thought in a more innocent time as the spell and transport which the craftsmen of words may create.”

New York Herald Tribune



“Writers as various as Marcel Proust, Thomas Wolfe, and James Thurber separately discovered that ‘you can't go home again.’ In The Waters of Kronos, novelist Conrad Richter adds an extra dimension to this truism. His hero grasps what countless other men have sensed: you can never really leave home.”

Time



“May it never go out of print again. It is an extraordinary book, the kind that could only have been written by someone for whom the techniques of storytelling had become second nature.”

—Frank Wilson, Philadelphia Inquirer



“To celebrate the reappearance of such a worthy novel may be an expression of regional patriotism, but it should also be an opportunity to think about our own small towns, our own haunted memories, and our own quest for the meaning of the past.”

—Jeffrey S. Wood, Cumberland County History
