Brilliant . . . What gives the book its edge is its setting: Cleveland. Winegardner weaves the love story through the fabric of a tumultuous era."
-the new york times book review
Dos Passos's classic trilogy U.S.A. now has a rival, in this richly plotted,
consistently engrossing big novel."-Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Crooked River Burning brings Cleveland's past to life on both an intimate and a sweeping scale. . . . But [Winegardner's] main achievement is narrative voice . . . that's distinctly his own."-Los Angeles Times
