Reviews
"A marvelous book, full of the intensity and grittiness of language drawn from rocky Kansas fields and from great literature. Kloefkorn's voice provides a perspective unlike any other I've read, one that has had me reading out loud, saying, 'Listen to this.'"--Peggy Shumaker, author of Underground Rivers
"A fun, interesting, and compelling read, combining the best of fiction writing with the intimacy and material of memoir."--Dianne Nelson Oberhansly, author of A Brief History of Male Nudes in America
"Imagine the renegade, 14-year old spirit of Huck Finn in the massive body of Merlin Olsen, gentlest of the giants who were the L.A. Rams' legendary 'Fearsome Foursome, ' and you've got Bill Kloefkorn. Or as close as you can get."--Harold Hill, Lincoln Journal Star
"As history both personal and communal, and as performance both written and oral, this book gives us [Kloefkorn] at his best."--David Pichaske, Great Plains Quarterly
