Description
The author of Horse Heaven, Good Faith, and the Pulitzer Prize winner A Thousand Acres gives us this nuanced, superbly drawn novel of marriage and family over six decades, revealing the mysteries of intimacy and the anonymity that endures even in lives lived side by side. Born in post–Civil War Missouri, married in 1905 at the ripe old age of 27 to naval astronomer Captain Andrew Jackson Jefferson Early, Margaret Mayfield was raised to expect a good domestic life. But as her husband's past and his strange understanding of the world come to light, Margaret finds herself a captive of her own life.

"Private Life, perhaps Jane Smiley's best novel since her Pulitzer Prize–winning A Thousand Acres, is so firmly anchored in its historical setting that the past comes to seem like the reader's present."—Oregonian

"Smiley tells her story precisely ... [with] a stunning specificity of detail.... Husband and wife are three-dimensional, alive and memorable in the way characters in fiction and people in biographies so rarely are."—Miami Herald
