“I thought Remembering Laughter a perfect little novel, clean, swift, and assured, and I can still feel the weight of the disaster in it.” Wendell Berry, author of That Distant Land
“There is no use to mention the assurance and calm that Mr. Stegner brings to his first book—it has to be read to be believed.” Saturday Review
“Published in 1937, Remembering Laughter launched the Pulitzer Prize–winning Stegner’s career as a novelist.” Library Journal
