About this product
- DescriptionThis assured, compassionate first vel channels the suburban angsty of Updike and Cheever...with pitch-perfect prose and endearingly melancholy characters. --Booklist (Starred Review) Anders Hill, entering his early sixties and seemingly ensconced in the land of steady habits --a nickname for the affluent, morally strict hamlets of Connecticut that dot his commuter rail line--abandons his career and family for a new condo and a new life. Stripped of the comforts of his previous identity, Anders turns up at a holiday party full of his ex-wife's friends and is suprised to find that the very world he rejected may be one he needs. Thus Anders embarks on a clumsy, hilarious, and heartbreaking journey to reconcile his past with his present. Like the early work of John Updike, Ted Thompson's first vel finely observes a man in deep conflict with his community. With compassion for its characters and fresh insight into the American tradition of the suburban narrative, THE LAND OF STEADY HABITS introduces an auspicious talent.
- Author BiographyTed Thompson is a graduate of the Iowa Writers Workshop, where he was awarded a Truman Capote Fellowship. His work has appeared in Tin House and Best New American Voices, among other publications. He was born in Connecticut and lives in Brooklyn with his wife.
