I had not read anything by this author, but I will again soon. Angle of Repose, by Wallace Stegner, is a wonderful read. It is slow paced, thoughtful and relaxing. It is, I think, really a commentary on marriage...What makes it work? What makes it fail? For my next Stegner book? Another reader has recommended Crossing to Safety, and my plan is to read this.
ANGLE OF REPOSE - the steepest angle of descent or dip relative to the horizontal plane to which a material can be piled without slumping. At this angle, the material on the slope face is on the verge of sliding.
