About this title

Synopsis:

"A powerful novel that magically combines symbolism, lyrical poetry and astonishing insight into the human soul."CHICAGO SUN-TIMESBluford "Blue" Calhoun has been a drunk and unhappy. But he's survived it all with the help of his wife and teenaged daughter. And just when he thought his future was written in stone, Luna, the beautiful sixteen-year-old daugher of an old high school friend, walks into his life. Their attraction is instant, and their passion undeniable. But as Blue and Luna find a miraculous love, they fall in danger of hurting the people they care about--and destroying the one extraordinary thing that matters most....

About the Author:

Reynolds Price was born in Macon, North Carolina in 1933. Reared and educated in the public schools of his native state, he earned an A.B. from Duke University; and in 1955 he traveled as a Rhodes Scholar to Merton College, Oxford University, to study English literature. After three years, and the B. Litt. degree, he returned to Duke where he continues to teach as James B. Duke Professor of English.

In 1962 his novel A Long and Happy Life appeared. It received the William Faulkner Award for a notable first novel and has never been out of print. Since, he has published other novels -- Blue Calhoun is the ninth -- and in 1986 his Kate Vaiden received the National Book Critics Circle Award. He has also published volumes of short stories, poems, plays, essays, translations from the Bible, a memoir Clear Pictures; and he has written for the screen and for television. His trilogy New Music premiered at the Cleveland Play House in 1989.

He is a member of the National Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, and his books have appeared in sixteen languages.
