From the publisher about "The Golden Age":
1987: the next generation of Langdons are facing economic, social, cultural, and political challenges unlike anything their ancestors have encountered. Moving seamlessly from the power-brokered 1980s and the scandal-ridden '90s to our own moment--and beyond--Golden Age combines intimate drama, emotional suspense, and a full command of history, bringing to a magnificent conclusion the century-long portrait of one unforgettable family. It is the crowning literary achievement from a master of American storytelling.
