Inhaltsangabe

From the best-selling author and winner of the Pulitzer Prize: a riveting, emotionally engaging journey through mid-century America, as lived by a remarkable family with roots in the heartland of Iowa.

Early Warning opens in 1953 with the Langdon family at a crossroads. Their stalwart patriarch Walter, who with his wife Rosanna, sustained their farm for three decades, has suddenly died, leaving their five children, now adults, looking to the future. Only one will remain in Iowa to work the land, while the others scatter to Washington, D.C., California, and everywhere in between.

As the country moves out of post-World War II optimism through the darker landscape of the Cold War and the social and sexual revolutions of the 1960s and '70s, and then into the unprecedented wealth - for some - of the early 1980s, the Langdon children each follow a different path in a rapidly changing world. And they now have children of their own: twin boys who are best friends and vicious rivals; a girl whose rebellious spirit takes her to the notorious Peoples Temple in San Francisco; and a golden boy who drops out of college to fight in Vietnam - leaving behind a secret legacy that will send shock waves through the Langdon family into the next generation.

Capturing a transformative period through richly drawn characters we come to know and care deeply for, Early Warning continues Smiley's extraordinary epic trilogy, a gorgeously told saga that began with Some Luck and will span a century in America. But it also stands entirely on its own as an engrossing story of the challenges - and rewards - of family and home, even in the most turbulent of times, all while showcasing a beloved writer at the height of her considerable powers.
