Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Brilliant, brutal and, in my opinion, Welch’s best work.” Washington Post
“A nearly flawless novel about human life…Few books in any year speak so unanswerably, make their own local terms so thoroughly ours.” New York Times Book Review
“An unnervingly beautiful book.” New York Review of Books
“Darrell Dennis captures the angst of the unnamed narrator in this classic novel of modern Native Americans on the Great Plains. He adroitly shifts between the flat dialogue of ranch life and the lyricism of the Western setting. Likewise, he captures the cadences of a trio of secondary characters…Dennis expresses the audiobook’s humor and pathos…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
