The Land of Little Rain


I just turned in a review of a new Mary Austin biography, so it's fitting that I've been hanging out in the desert for the last couple of weeks. As Robert Hass has noted, water is to Mary Austin's 1903 classic, The Land of Little Rain, what marriage is to Jane Austen's novels: the element that explains everything.
