The final work of fiction from the writer who Nobel laureate Patrick White called "a novelist of genius,"
I'm Dying Laughing is a large and original novel of betrayal and self-delusion, madness and consuming passions,
that recreates to chilling effect the political turbulence of the American Left and the clamor and menace of the McCarthy
Right. Not since her classic The Man Who Loved Children has Stead fashioned such willful and memorable
characters as Emily Wilks and Stephen Howard. Emily is a woman of enormous but mercurial enthusiasms whose
unflagging ebullience masks a darkness that will lead to disaster. Stephenhandsome, clever, spoiledis a dangerous
dreamer, an upper-class dropout playing at radical politics. Together, they mirror the times through which they live: the
heady revolutionary fervor of the Depression, the short collaborative effort of wartime America, the fracturing and
fractiousness of the Cold War years. Savage, tragic, and mordantly funny, I'm Dying Laughing is manifestly one
of the great works of one of the century's great writers.
