Synopsis: First appearing in the novel Billy Phelan’s Greatest Game, and again in Ironweed–which won the Pulitzer Prize–members of the Phelan clan moveew novel. Three generations of the family are played out in ambitious and brilliant fashion, making for a sparkling literary experience. Very Old Bones treats us to one last look at the odd and turbulent Phelans, circa 1958. Stretching the boundaries of life as the Phelans know it, this powerful work flows back and forth in time, riding on the melody of its language. Its great theme is the promise of redemption for those who seek it.
