Remembering Laughter - Wallace Stegner, Mary Stegner This is a very sad tale of Iowa, in which Alec and Margaret Stuart welcome Margaret’s 22-year-old sister, Elspeth to their farm. Margaret is a proper, conservative soul. Alec is much more lively, humorous, earthy, but is also more driven by his impulses. Alec and Elspeth do the nasty, which produces a child. All goes to hell and the sisters wind up living lives of withered desperation. Not a happy tale, but one that is beautifully told.
