Some Luck

Author : Jane Smiley


IndieBound Staff

Some Luck by Jane Smiley. I’ve been a great fan of hers for years – A Thousand Acres is one of my all-time favourite books – but I’ve not read her much recently, so I was glad to get this for Christmas. I’m only halfway through, but I’m enjoying its slow revelations of Iowa farming family life in the 1920s and 30s and the quirky conceit of presenting the small children’s perspectives. It’s a quiet read, but an atmospheric one. - Meryl, IndieBound Staff
