Beyond the Bedroom Wall by Larry Woiwode
Publisher: Avon Books
SYNOPSIS: Woiwode's novel follows three generations of the Neumiller family. Larry Woiwode's short stories about the Neumiller family first appeared in The New Yorker and Harper's before they were woven together into this richly emotional novel about a family of young children whose mother becomes ill and dies. Although there is a whole range of deeply felt emotions in the book, it is often the heartbreak of everyday life that permeates the work. Meawhile, there is a near-Proustian depth of detail in the account of lives lived in small midwestern towns, first in North Dakota and then Illinois. Woiwode also captures the dynamics of family life, particularly in the close relationship between the narrator and his slightly older brother (a relationship celebrated, explored, and lamented in a sequel novel, "Born Brothers"). Larry Woiwode is also a poet. That explains the beauty and intensity of his prose. 610 pages
