Having followed the Langdon family through an American century of dramatic change and personal emotion, the much-anticipated third novel Golden Age reaches from the present moment to a magnificent near-future conclusion. 'The phrase 'a great novelist at the height of her powers' is so overused, but for once here it really is true.' - The Times 'What Smiley feels most like here, for her faultless skill in bringing a wide cast so vividly into being, is America's Tolstoy' - The Guardian Join Pulitzer-prize winning author Jane Smiley for this celebratory evening of readings and conversation, followed by a book-signing.
