Description

The magnificent conclusion of Maureen Howard's ambitious quartet of novels.
Maureen Howard is one of America's most esteemed authors, beloved both for the lyricism of her writing and her dazzling intellect. "The Rags of Time" is a moving meditation on memory and imagination that, in its interplay of history, politics, art and life, explores the very necessity of telling stories. Focusing on a New York writer with an ailing heart as she reviews her own history and the lives she imagined in her fiction, the novel interlaces the sorrows and consolations of private moments with the undeniable memory of the public record. The result is nothing less than a deeply profound exploration of American life.
