Product Details


‘I loved this book. God’s Country is like no western I’ve ever read before: a wonderfully strange and darkly hilarious brew of Kafka and GarcÌa Marquez, of Twilight Zone and F-Troop, with cameo appearances by Walt Whitman and George Custer thrown in for good measure. Percival Everett has written a terrific book, a Wild West road trip that challenges our assumptions about what human dignity really means.’–Bret Lott, author of Jewel: A Novel

‘An outrageously funny, alarmingly serious, highly enjoyable novel.’–Amanda Heller, The Boston Globe

‘This wild novel of the West is comic and fierce, turn by turn; it follows white and black and red men down their several paths through God’s Country, and the reader tracks them with a sense of shocked delight.’–Nicholas Delbanco, author of What Remains

‘Mr. Everett is successful combining heart with rage. . . . The novel sears.’–David Bowman, The New York Times Book Review
