Description: No Stock Photos! We photograph every item. light edge wear, ex-library with usual markings; New Canadian Library N 62; Sinclair Ross' 1941 novel As For Me and My House is a masterpiece of Canadian literature, a stunning evocation of the Prairies and their inhabitants during the Depression of the Thirties. With The Lamp at Noon and Other Stories, an original New Canadian Library collection, Ross reveals further dimensions of his fictional universe.A woman's impulsive infidelity leads to tragedy. A sudden hailstorm destroys hope. A boy learns to conquer a beautiful wild horse. A little girl dreams about a circus. Against the isolated, haunting landscapes of summer droughts and winter blizzards, the men and women of Ross' stories grapple with fate against almost impossible odds. Marked by a legacy of pride that will not suffer defeat, Ross' unyielding characters are cut off from their loved ones by obstinacy and defiance. Their tragedy is not that they suffer, but that they suffer alone.The sensitivity, compassion, and subtlety with which Ross portrays human aspirations and failings remain to this day unequaled in Canadian fiction.
