Reviews

"Susan Henderson's The Flicker of Old Dreams is a clear-eyed, wise, and poignant tale of losses and gains, told with tremendous empathy and grace."--Therese Anne Fowler, New York Times bestselling author of Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald
"Susan Henderson offers us the wondrous, sharp picture of the small town of Petroleum, Montana where the past comes back on two feet and a blizzard rages. The Flicker of Old Dreams is a fine novel, heartfelt and bracing company. It is a gem."--Ron Carlson, author of Five Skies
"Susan Henderson has secured her position as one of my favorite novelists. You won't be able to turn away from this tender, elegiac and haunting novel that beautifully exposes the human heart, the human body, and the human condition."--Jessica Anya Blau, author of the nationally bestselling novel The Summer of Naked Swim Parties
"This novel is so breathtakingly good, so exquisitely written. About a female mortician, about a childhood tragedy that still haunts a damaged young man, about the endless landscape and about those tiny sparks of possibility. Oh my God. Trust me. This book. This book. This Book."--Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Cruel Beautiful World
"A truly magnificent work of art. The soul energy that is pushing through this story is unstoppable, beautiful, vulnerable, powerful."--Jessica Keener, author of Night Swim and Strangers in Budapest
"Like the wind scours paint from an old grain silo, Susan Henderson's writing scours away all the pretend niceness of small town life in Montana to reveal the frayed and patched nature of humanity."--Helen Simonson, New York Times bestselling author of The Summer Before the War
"The Flicker of Old Dreams is at once a vivid and wildly compelling study of small town American life and an intimate and incisive exploration of the human condition, from love to loss and beyond."--Jonathan Evison, the New York Times
