“But Cather is not just a good writer - she is unique, and great.” AS Byatt, The Guardian

“True to form, the characters and setting were vivid and the writing easy to appreciate.” Fingers & Prose

“The most sensuous of writers, Willa Cather builds her imagined world almost as solidly as our five senses build the universe around us.” Rebecca West

“She is undoubtedly one of the twentieth century's greatest American writers” Observer

“Claude Wheeler, our protagonist, is a dissatisfied young man, the son of a wealthy farmer, as the story opens. Although he is in college, it is a religious college, where he chafes at the poor quality of teaching. Claude is a misfit in his quiet farming town. He longs for more from life than farming in Nebraska and buying new gadgets.” Tea and a Good Book blogspot

ONE OF OURS is one of Cather's greatest novels. It won the 1923 Pulitzer Prize and is the story of a young man’s journey from rural Nebraska to the wider world.

Willa Cather is one of the most important writers of the 20th Century. Her books include “My √Āntonia” which is part of the “Prairie Trilogy.”
