“Immediately indelible characters… intensely palpable and delicately drawn. I was totally swallowed by the story… like a fine painting you enter and utterly inhabit. Litzenburger is so obviously a fine writer.” —Jim Harrison, author of True North
“Tense and terrific… The Widower is a mystery and a heartbreak and a road trip… and Litzenburger is an original, delivering an intricate story layer by layer, character by character, accident by misunderstanding, right to the devastatingly satisfying ending.” —Bill Roorbach, author of Temple Stream: A Rural Odyssey
