Philipp Meyer spoke about his book, The Son, at Politics & Prose on Thursday, July 25, 2013.
In his second novel, the author of the acclaimed American Rust chronicles the lives and times of the McCulloughs, Texas homesteaders, from the 1850s to the present. Marked as much by the violent swings of history as by their own ambition, this family of survivors outgrows early experiences of victimization to amass wealth and power.
