For Kings And Planets

Reviewer Alan Cheuse says that the new book For Kings and Planets by Ethan Canin is one of the best to be published by a younger writer in recent memory. It's the story of a man who goes to Columbia University and experiences the tensions between city and country, Midwest and East, finally finding out about life in a classic coming-of-age story. For Kings and Planets by Ethan Canin is published by Random House.
