Reviews

"In the Morning, the City Is the Prairie is an achingly funny and sad read. Seen through the eyes of college dropout Matt Bennet, Oklahoma City is surreal: spiked with skyscrapers and paved with squat chain stores that grip a dying earth beneath a boundless sky. Roensch's astonishing, poetic prose kept me reading for the surprise of each sentence."

-Chris Harding Thornton, author of Pickard County Atlas and Little Underworld


"Set during a recent, turbulent spring in Oklahoma City, Rob Roensch's engrossing new novel drops us into the rich, quirky mind of Matt, a college dropout/reluctant Costco cashier who's trying to figure out what and who is worth fighting for as his family-and the entire country, it seems-falls apart around him. Searching, funny, and wise, In the Morning, the City Is the Prairie is both a moving coming-of-age novel and an urgent investigation into what will actually be required if we're to remain hopeful in this beautiful, broken world."

-Mark Rader, author of The Wanting Life
