Reviews
PRAISE FOR WOE TO LIVE ON

"[A] fine novel...Daniel Woodrell has captured the devastation of war and, more importantly, the twisting of men's minds."--United Press International
"The violence is fast and understated, and bawdy humor relieves the story's intensity."--Kansas City Star
"A renegade Western...that celebrates the genre while bushwhacking its most cherished traditions...Jake Roedel recites his tale of woe in an improbably rustic idiom, with a malignant humor and a hip sensibility that are wise beyond his years and way ahead of his times."--Chicago Tribune
"Woodrell pins it down just right...speaks to the universal cruelty of civil war."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch
