News and Notes
At Heaven's Gate
Robert Penn Warren's second novel suffers from an unfortunate birth place. Like a forgotten middle child, it appears between two works that have attracted much more attention from readers and critics alike: Night Rider, the first novel that marked the start of a brilliant career, and the Pulitzer-Prize winning classic, All the King's Men. Yet At Heaven's Gate contains all of the beauty and wisdom that is the signature of Warren's prose. Read it and discover the fact that Warren was the finest American writer of the century not to win the Nobel Prize.
