  • Because a Fire Was in My Headby Lynn Stegner

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 24.95

    Kate Riley is not the sort of heroine we meet in most American novels. Self-centered, shape-shifting, driven from one man to another and one city to the next, she is all too real—but not at all the loyal and steady homebody of idealized womanhood. When we first encounter her, Kate (or Katherine, or Kate of the Prairie, or Katrina) is about to undergo... more...
