A Wagner Matinee

 

Clark Hamilton, raised in rural Nebraska, has transformed himself; living in Boston, he has shed all signs of his origins. When his Aunt Georgiana comes to visit, he is brought face to face with the contrast between rural and city life, the painful absence of music in his aunt's existence on the windswept prairie, and--most of all--the understanding that some choices are indelible. Willa Cather renders the relationship between nephew and aunt with heartbreaking dignity.
