New Music: a trilogy

By Reynolds Price

Paperback £10.99

Three interrelated plays tracing the tangled path of a family's life in a North Carolina town across 37 years, from before the Second World War to the war in Vietnam.

August Snow (3f 2m) introduces Neal Avery, a golden boy whose complex relations with his mother Roma, his best friend Porter Farwell and the town of his birth threaten his marriage.

In Night Dance (3f 4m), a slightly older Neal and his wife Taw are forced to confront the deaths of their contemporaries and the mysteries of their own future.

Well into their middle years, the old friends and lovers of Better Days (3f 4m) must transcend the passing of the previous generation and the familiar turmoil of the next.
