Golden Age is the third novel in the dazzling Last Hundred Years Trilogy from the Jane Smiley, winner of the Pulitzer Prize. 1987. A visit from a long-lost relative brings the Langdons together again on the family farm; a place almost unrecognisable from the remote Iowan farmland Walter and Rosanna once owned. Whilst a few have stayed, most have spread wide across the US, but all are facing social, economic and political challenges unlike anything their ancestors encountered. Richie Langdon, finally out from under his twin brother's shadow, finds himself running for congress almost unintentionally, and completely underprepared for the world-changing decisions he will have to make. Charlie, the charmer, recently found, struggles to find his way. Jesse's son, Guthrie, set to take over the family farm, is deployed to Iraq, leaving it in the hands of his younger sister, Felicity, who must defend the land from more than just the extremes of climate change. Moving through the 1990s, to our own moment and beyond, this last instalment sees the final repercussions of time on the Langdon family. After a hundred years of personal change and US history, filled with words unsaid and moments lost, Golden Age brings to a magnificent conclusion the century-long portrait of one unforgettable family.And so, how was it that so welltrained a person as herselfa€”also trained by Fiona, at these clinics she took Sunlight toa€”driving a Ford F350, a person who was ... but it seemed to Janet that she viewed him like a horse that had been in the stable for a while and then gone on to another owner. ... In the trailer, the horses would be spreading their hind legs, dropping their heads, shifting their weight forward.
