Winner of the 1972 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for Angle of Repose, Wallace Stegner was the author of 13 novels and five collections of short stories, as well as the founder of Stanford University's creative writing program. This collection of a lifetime of Stegner's letters provides a long-awaited look into his life and mind. Edited by his son Page, Stegner's expansive correspondence shows him not only as a lauded educator and author but also as a man who never stopped learning, never stopped questioning his origins and his essential self.

"Whether responding to questions from his biographers, engaging in literary controversy, chiding a grandson about his faulty spelling and grammar or, in 1982, turning down a medal from the National Endowment for the Arts (which he felt was subject to too many political controls), Stegner is always attentive to the niceties of the writing craft, gracious and generous in his assessment of the achievements of others. The letters reveal much about his personal life and innermost thoughts, thus acting as a substitute for the autobiography he never wrote. Particularly illuminating are passages that give insight into the background of some of his books."Publishers Weekly
