William Haywood Henderson, reads from and discusses his soaring new novel set in the West, Augusta Locke.

Set primarily in Wyoming, Henderson’s new novel chronicles a woman’s troubled and short-lived relationships with both her mother and her daughter. Redolent with myth, humor, strange landscapes and stark reality, Augusta Locke is an indelible portrait of a woman who, through great spirit and toughness of character, blazes her own trail. Of his previous novel, The Rest of the Earth, Annie Proulx remarked that “Henderson writes some of the most evocative and transcendently beautiful prose in contemporary Ameircan literature.”

($24.95) Viking ISBN #0-670-03491-6. Please visit William Haywood Henderson’s official web site as well.
