Re: “Book Review: A Slant of Light by Jeffrey Lent

Thank goodness Lent offers us something different than the pacing of contemporary novels. I always find it interesting how different interpretations can be. Ms. Zapp refers to the 19th century life described in the novel as "at times unbearably dull." Was it? I wonder. It was, certainly, a life of unremitting work for farmers, but August Swartout, for example, seems to take great pride in such a life. For me, Lent's vision of this world--especially the natural world--is intensely beautiful and alive. But maybe it takes a certain slant of light to see it.
