The Lay of the Land
His story resumes in the autumn of 2000, when his trade as a realtor on the Jersey Shore is thriving, permitting him to revel in the acceptance of “:that long, stretching-out time when my dreams would have mystery like any ordinary person’:s: when whatever I do or say, who I marry, how my kids turn out, becomes what the world—:if it makes note at all—:knows of me, how I’:m seen, understood, even how I think of myself before whatever there is that’:s wild and unassuagable rises and cheerlessly hauls me off to oblivion.”: But as a Presidential election hangs in the balance, and a postnuclear-family Thanksgiving looms before him along with crises both marital and medical, Frank discovers that what he terms the Permanent Period is fraught with unforeseen perils: “:All the ways that life feels like life at age fifty-five were strewn around me like poppies.”:
A holiday, and a novel, no reader will ever forget—:at once hilarious, harrowing, surprising, and profound. The Lay of the Land is astonishing in its own right and a magnificent expansion of one of the most celebrated chronicles of our time.
