Overview

Without question Charles Baxter, whose ravishing novel The Feast of Love was a National Book Award finalist, is one of our finest contemporary writers. These two books, set in the Michigan landscape that Baxter has made his own, display his unparalleled gift for revealing the unexpected in everyday life. In the novel Shadow Play, a decent man, having made a "devil's bargain," finds himself on that precarious border between personal love and social responsibility. Reading group guide included.

Author Biography: Charles Baxter lives in Ann Arbor and teaches at the University of Michigan. He is the recipient of a Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Foundation Award for Writers and an Academy Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
