A thousand acres, a piece of land of almost mythic proportions. Upon this fertile, nourishing earth, Jane Smiley has set her rich, breathtakingly dramatic novel of an American family whose wealth cannot stay the hand of tragedy. It is the intense, compelling story of a father and his daughters, of sisters, of wives and husbands, and of the human cost of a lifetime spent trying to subdue the land and the passions it stirs. The most critically acclaimed novel of the literary season, a classic story of contemporary American life, A THOUSAND ACRES is destined to be read for years to come.
"It has been a long time since a novel so surprised me with its power to haunt . . . . Its genius grows from its ruthless acceptance of the divided nature of every character . . . . This gives A THOUSAND ACRES the prismatic quality of the greatest art." -- Chicago Tribune
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award


土地を譲り生きがいを失った父との対立が深まるなか、封印を解かれた父娘の衝撃の過去。次第に精神の均衡を失っていく罪深き暴君に、勇気ある闘いを挑む姉妹の未来は…。伝統的なアメリカの家庭の崩壊の果てに、新しい女性像を描く大河巨篇。ピューリッツァー文学賞受賞作。 --このテキストは、絶版本またはこのタイトルには設定されていない版型に関連付けられています。

5つ星のうち 4.0 Not for the squeamish reader 1999/11/16

I am a college student, and as a logical step after readingKing Lear in my literary analysis class, we then turned our focus on Athousand Acres. I can't say how glad I am that this book fell across my path. Throughout my book my opinions about the characters changed so often, that I didn't know who to trust and who was the good guy and who was the bad guy. I came in with the expectation that Larry and Caroline would be the heroes, and that even though Ginny was the narrator we would clearly realize that she is evil. However, the characterization in this book is so deep and intricate that it is nearly impossible to lable one character as truly evil, except for the surprising conclusion of Larry Cook, whom I hated with a passion. However, this book can not be read with the expectation that it will give the reader pleasure. Instead, it reaches into the very depths of your emotions and twists them around with so vigorous a hand that you are nearly sickened by some of the action in the story. This book has some of the greatest depth I have ever known in a novel, and incorporates many subjects and undertones into its plot.

5つ星のうち 1.0 The characters were covered in gray dust... 2016/7/30

Reading this was like walking down a curvy dirt road in farm country. It shrunk down to a dirt track and then disappeared into nothing. There was no passion in the story. The characters were one dimensional and covered in gray dust. I read it in its entirety hoping the end would be better than the beginning. I finished the book because I like to complete something I start. This was disappointing from beginning to end.

5つ星のうち 5.0 My favorite Jane Smiley novel 2015/9/22

I really enjoyed this farming family saga. It’s gorgeously written and is perfectly balanced between character study and well-paced plot. This is a reimagining of Shakespeare’s King Lear, but Jane Smiley doesn’t hold too close to the King Lear story, so the link didn’t reveal anything in advance except that I didn’t expect things to go well for the family in general. I’ve read a few novels by Smiley, and this one is my favorite by far.

The grudging bonds of family and loyalty are at the core of A Thousand Acres. It is told in the first-person through Ginny, one of the three Cook sisters who is in constant contact with her sister Rose and her drunken and abusive father Larry. The third sister, Caroline, is the odd woman out, and was able to get her education and find her way out of this lion's den. The story is about Larry bequeathing his farm to Ginny and Rose, the series of events that makes him regret his decision and effort to have it revoked, and the new awakening that this causes the women to have about themselves and their relationship to one another. As a novel it works well; the plot is intriguing, moves at a reasonable pace, and is told with a common vernacular that has moments here and there of a mature and rare perception. The women have a somewhat unfortunate, but altogether realistic relationship, and like all of us have their good and their bad moments. Also noteworthy is the depiction within the family as well as the town of the clashing between generations; once Larry Cook has written his daughters off, the older farmers' vituperation towards the younger Cook sisters is realistically told, and added an interesting nuance to the story. The only area where the novel fell a little flat with me was in regards to some of the decisions Ginny made. I never understood her enough to get why she chose to have her affair since her husband was so seemingly decent, and her third act decision (regarding the sauerkraut jar) did not seem to be something she would realistically do. I was also perplexed as to how the sisters could be so passive and dedicated to their father, considering what he did to them throughout their childhood, but perhaps such resolutions are made in real-life instances of abuse. All in all this is a well-told story, one that you may not want to revisit later down the road but that you're satisfied with once it's over.

Well written book about a multi-generational family in Farmland USA. The story follows a large family from the children's perspectives from childhood through young adulthood. Recommend.
