But the realities of the present recede in the face of the ghosts of his past. As he makes the perfunctory arrangements for the funeral, we enter with him on an intensely personal and painful inner pilgrimage, meeting the father who darkened his childhood, the mother whose support was both redeeming and embarrassing, the friend who drew him into the respectable world of which he so craved to be a part, and the woman he nearly married.
In this profoundly moving book, Stegner has drawn an intimate portrait of a man understanding how his life has been shaped by experiences seemingly remote and inconsequential.

I felt this sequel lack the charm and detail of Big Rock Candy Mountain. It's timeline was muddled and often unclear. I'd have rather had more of Bruce's adult life than his childhood. He seemed to have nothing but regrets.
