Award-winning and bestselling author Wallace Stegner takes on the hippy generation in a novel of “crackling vividness” (New York Times Book Review). Joe Allston, the retired literary agent in Stegner’s National Book Award–winning novel The Spectator Bird, returns in this disquieting and keenly observed novel. Scarred by the senseless death of their son and baffled by the engulfing chaos of the 1960s, Allston and his wife, Ruth, have left the coast for a California retreat. And although their new home looks like Eden, it also has its serpents: Jim Peck, a messianic exponent of drugs, yoga, and sex, and Marian Catlin, an attractive young woman whose otherwordly innocence is far more appealing—and far more dangerous.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Quite simply, a beautiful novel—strong, moving, wise, funny—as topical as today’s newspaper.” Publishers Weekly
“The Great Gastby captures the twenties and yet transcends them. All the Little Live Things is a comparable achievement for the sixties…Stegner’s craft is here at an apex.” Virginia Quarterly Review
