Reviews
"A wonderful idiosyncratic novel full of wisdom and hope, humor and dance, and transcendent in its beauty. Since the appearance of his first book Indian Summers, the novelist, short story writer, painter, and poet Eric Gansworth has been an indefatigable chronicler of the infinite lives of Upstate New York's Indian communities but with Mending Skins he has produced a small masterpiece, a rich and varied spectacle that illuminates the deepest quadrants of the human heart."--Junot Díaz, author of Drown
"What distinguishes this short novel from others is its sharp wit and particular tribal locale, the Tuscarora, in upstate New York. . . . Gansworth's own illustrations preface each section and foreshadow plot events. The characters are so engaging and events intertwined that a longer novel would have been welcome."--P. Jane Hafen, Multicultural Review
"Eric Gainsworth is unquestionably one of the rising stars on the Western New York literary scene."--R. D. Pohl, Buffalo Spree Magazine
