A successful Iowa farmer decides to divide his farm between his three daughters. When the youngest objects, she is cut out of his will, setting off a chain of events that brings dark truths to light and rips the lid off of long-suppressed emotions. Winning the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award, Jane Smiley's stunning reimagining of Shakespeare's King Lear possesses "the prismatic quality of the greatest art" (Chicago Tribune).

"A near-epic investigation into the broad landscape, the thousand dark acres of the human heart.... The book has all the stark brutality of a Shakespearean tragedy."—Washington Post Book World
