Reviews
"The rugged land and lives of rural Eastern Washington form the setting for Bruce Holbert's riveting and beautifully written new novel... a portrait of a disappearing way of life, lovingly told in gorgeous and moving prose." --Seattle Times

"Holbert has been compared to Cormac McCarthy, but really he brings to mind the early John Steinbeck, as in To a God Unknown, with its melodrama and twisted pantheism." --Booklist

"Bruce Holbert is a lyrical, soulful chronicler of our ever-changing West." --Jess Walter, author of Beautiful Ruins

"Holbert's powerful work echoes the romance of America's Western experience. A masterpiece." --Kirkus, Starred Review

"Holbert's clever conclusion offers several surprising twist and some satisfaction" --Publishers Weekly
