This twentieth-century reimagining of Shakespeare’s King Lear by Jane Smiley centres on a wealthy Iowa farmer who decides to divide his farm among his three daughters.

When the youngest objects, she is cut out of his will, which sets in motion a chain of events that brings dark truths to light. Ambitiously conceived and stunningly written, A Thousand Acres spins the most fundamental themes of truth, justice, love and pride into a universally acclaimed masterpiece.

Winner the 1992 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction
