Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Exercising a talent both robust and sensitive…Doig lifts what might have been marginally engaging reminiscence into an engrossing and moving recovery of an obscure human struggle. There is defeat and triumph here, grief and joy, nobility and meanness, all arising from common place events, episodes and locales…A real writer is at hand.” Time
“A beautifully written, deeply felt book…The language begins in western territory and experience but in the hands of an artist it touches all landscape and all life. Doig is such an artist.” Los Angeles Times
“Doig now has to be considered the premier writer of the American West.” Chicago Sun-Times
“The stirring debut of a gifted writer: Doig spins straw into gold.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
