I thought this was a very enjoyable read. A good story with interesting characters and a excellent reader who was easy to listen to.
Jane Smiley, as far as I can tell, wrote one good book--A Thousand Acres--which is a masterpiece. This book, is badly written drivel as are most of the other books by her I have read.
Jane SMiley is the number one author today. Nobody can tell the human or equine story like she can. In her novel Good Faith she educates her readers on the dealings of real estate and the human condition. Her writing is real and alive. The world Smiley creates is so bright and interesting. Another gem form Jane SMiley.
Jane Smiley was born in Los Angeles, grew up in St. Louis, and studied at Vassar and the University of Iowa, where she received her Ph.D. She isthe author of eight other works of fiction. She lives in central California.
