Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Hanson [gives] readers the full vent of the desolation that lurches out of his landscapes and blows like a cold wind into the lives of his hapless Americans.” Publishers Weekly
“This collection extends the boundaries of the short story form while remaining centered on Nebraska and the human experience; enthusiastically recommended for all readers.” Library Journal
“A diverse, well-written collection from a writer in complete control of his material…An excellent collection. Hansen can write.” Kirkus Reviews
“Nebraska depicts a rowdy, changing American West with wit and brawny lyricism, in voices ranging from hip to tender, the stories gathered here are as diverse and expansive as the country they celebrate…References to America’s heartland abound throughout the book and serve as a central metaphor for what’s close to American hearts, what connects us: dreams, myths and possibilities as vast as the Great Plains. Wise and smart-alecky, creaking with legend and crackling with modernisms, these tales are about American obsession past and present.” Washington Post Book World
“Ron Hansen has carved out his own geographical niche. His Nebraska is a distinctive mix of nineteenth-century settlers and 1980s breadwinners, of sudden storms and life-long yearnings, of lost souls stranded in the middle of nowhere. It should put him on the short-story map.” USA Today
“Extraordinary...the work of an accomplished craftsman and a superb storyteller.” New York Times Book Review
“Hansen’s majestic, melancholic, windswept, sobering stories all taste different.” Washington Post
“Unforgettable stories, each utterly different from the one before…This is writing that slows the breathing.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Rich in its art, high in its thematic reach, resonating with the complexities of a dense and fully realized fictional world.” Tim O’Brien, award-winning author of The Things They Carried
