A Death in the FamilyBook - 2000
Pulitzer Prize-winner 1957. "Brilliant, moving ... It is wonderfully alive." - The New Yorker. Over forty years after its original publication, James Agee's last novel seems, more than ever, an American classic. In his powerful account of a man's death and its impact on his family, Agee painstakingly created a small world of domestic happiness and then showed how quickly it could be destroyed. On a sultry day in 1915, Jay Follett leaves his house to tend to his father whom he believes is dying. The summons turns out to be a false alarm. But on his way home, Jay is killed instantly in a car accident.
