Reviews

Louise Erdrich The Chicago Tribune Monumental...Bighearted, an unabashedly romantic love story...There is no putting aside Dalva.
The Los Angeles Times Book Review Jim Harrison's Dalva is the story of a remarkable modern woman's search for her son....Harrison beautifully conveys Dalva's essential femininity...Dalva asserts that she has never been seduced -- has always, subtly, done the seducing of lovers herself...Harrison's Dalva may well seduce you, too.
The Washington Post Book World Dalva...is that rare fictional creation, a character whom the reader dearly would love to meet.
The Boston Globe Harrison's stories move with random power and reach in the manner of Melville and Faulkner.
The London Sunday Times Jim Harrison is a writer with immortality in him.
Louise Erdich Chicago Tribune Fascinating...a work of humor and a unified lament....Voices that cut through time and cross the barriers of culture and gender to achieve a work in chorus ...there is no putting aside Dalva until the time bombs go off, the identities are revealed, and the skeletons almost literally tumble from the closets...Dalva is suspended in its own beauty...a book to...read with trust and exuberance.
Publishers Weekly Entertaining, moving, and memorable...a cast of fascinating characters.
The New York Times Book Review Harrison's storytelling instincts are nearly flawless...The people in Dalva reemerge as full-blooded individuals who almost incidentally embody much of the innocence, carelessness, and urgency that played so large a part in the settling of this country. Best of all, perhaps, are Mr. Harrison's descriptions of the land -- the untamed deserts, plains, forests, and arroyos of what was once the Western frontier...tough but rhapsodic language.
San Francisco Chronicle A fascinating novel about an American woman...Harrison uses his pen as a sword to right wrongs and settle scores....He takes bigger risks, letting go of old habits and surrendering to his own impassioned imagination.
