Toby Maytree first sees Lou Bigelow on her bicycle in postwar
Provincetown, Massachusetts. Her laughter and loveliness catch his
breath. Maytree is a Provincetown native, an educated poet of thirty.
As he courts Lou, just out of college, her stillness draws him.
Hands-off, he hides his serious wooing, and idly shows her his poems.
In spare, elegant prose, Dillard traces the Maytrees' decades of loving and longing. They live cheaply among the nonconformist artists and writers that the bare tip of Cape Cod attracts. Lou takes up painting. When their son Petie appears, their innocent Bohemian friend Deary helps care for him. But years later it is Deary who causes the town to talk.In this moving novel, Dillard intimately depicts nature's vastness and nearness. She presents willed bonds of loyalty, friendship, and abiding love. Warm and hopeful, "The Maytrees" is the surprising capstone of Annie Dillard's original body of work.
