What the Thunder Said

Original Synopsis

"What the Thunder Said has a total of 320 pages which are papers from writer 'Janet Peery'. What the Thunder Said is the 2008 winner of the WILLA Literary Award for Contemporary Fiction. In the Dust Bowl of 1930s Oklahoma, a family comes apart, as sisters Mackie and Etta Spoon keep secrets from their father, and from each other. Etta, the dangerously impulsive favorite of her father, longs for adventure someplace far away from the bleak and near-barren plains, and she doesn't care how she gets there; watchful Mackie keeps house and obeys the letter of her father's law, while harboring her own dreams. After the massive 1935 Black Sunday dust storm brings ruin to the family, the sisters' conflict threatens further damage. Seeking escape, and wagering their futures on an Indian boarding school runaway named Audie Kipp, the two leave home to forge their own separate paths, each setting off in search of a new life, each finding a fate different than she expected. Through shifting perspectives, voices, and characters, What the Thunder Said tracks their wayward progress, following the sisters, their children, and those whose stories intersect with theirs as they range across the high plains of the West in the decades after the Great Depression. Etta's hitchhiking encounter with a bookish couple in the Garden of the Gods; a prairie jackrabbit drive, during which Mackie's son, Jesse, discovers the cloth he's cut from; an old man's failing memory as he tells of spying on an Indian loner on the outskirts of a Kansas town; a middle-aged doctor's chance meeting with a mysterious wayfarer while on a quest to New Mexico in search of his lost youth; and Mackie's late reconciliation with her aged father, whose habit of silence has bred her own---all are rendered in vivid prose that captures the plains and the people who endured devastation and lived to look back on it. Slow-gathering, powerful, with passages of haunting beauty, What the Thunder Said is the long-awaited third work of fiction by one of our most acclaimed storytellers. 2013-11-19 time of publication of the book, [-St. Martin's Press-]"

The Exact Nature of Our Wrongs

Original Synopsis

"The Exact Nature of Our Wrongs has a total of 288 pages which are papers from writer 'Janet Peery'. Janet Peery’s first novel, The River Beyond the World, was a National Book Award finalist in 1996. Acclaimed for her gorgeous writing and clear-eyed gaze into the hearts of people, Peery now returns with her second novel, The Exact Nature of Our Wrongs. On a summer evening in the blue-collar town of Amicus, Kansas, the Campbell family gathers for a birthday dinner for their ailing patriarch, retired judge Abel Campbell, prepared and hosted by their still-hale mother Hattie. But when Billy, the youngest sibling—with a history of addiction, grand ideas, and misdemeanors—passes out in his devil’s food cake, the family takes up the unfinished business of Billy’s sobriety. Billy’s wayward adventures have too long consumed their lives, in particular Hattie’s, who has enabled his transgressions while trying to save him from Abel’s disappointment. As the older children—Doro, Jesse, ClairBell, and Gideon—contend with their own troubles, they compete for the approval of the elderly parents they adore, but can’t quite forgive. With knowing humor and sure-handed storytelling, Janet Peery reveals a family at its best and worst, with old wounds and new, its fractures and feuds, and yet its unbreakable bonds. 2017-09-19 time of publication of the book, [-St. Martin's Press-]"

A National Book Award Finalist for Fiction Set in the Texas/Mexico border country in the years from 1944 to the present, The River Beyond the World is the story of two women on the edge of sexual, moral, political, and spiritual divides. Luisa Cantú is a girl from a Sierra Madre mountain village. After being impregnated in a fertility ritual of ancient origin, she leaves Mexico to work in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas as a housemaid for Mrs. Eddie Hatch, a woman with a strong will and a narrow worldview.

The Askandar

Original Synopsis

"The Askandar has a total of 172 pages which are papers from writer 'Norris Ray Peery'. The Askandar is a continuation of the story ETMA PNIKRE. The Askandar, the great starship has escaped with its six thousand survivors from the cremation of the planet Earth and now rushes onward in its journey through the blackest darkness of the infinite ocean of the universe. In the starship, within its occupants, live all of the natural instincts and emotions, which had fluxed and flowed within the cultures, the survivors had left behind. No one had given much consideration to the great broad spectrum of the human condition, which would demand its satisfaction, even though it had been stripped from its natural home. The individual's instinctive creature found itself resident within a closed capsule, where it still needed to satisfy its ancient secret yearnings, and to find contentment for the beast, which secretly underlies civilized humanity, that it might be peaceably consoled. And so, though Earth and its societies had all become just a distant cinder, the mysterious ways of Mother Earth had been so patiently distilled into every cell and every fiber of the people on the starship, that her ways, her embedded instincts, her emotions of love, hatred, and savagery, rode within the ship in the safe luxury of each individual survivor. 2003-04-20 time of publication of the book, [-iUniverse-]"
