Product Details


“A taut, stirring, highly original thriller.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Crumley works with fever on the brow, and the most lyrical and true English sentences I’ve seen lately. Dancing Bear is a wonder of compression, truth and wisdom.” –Barry Hannah

“Top-notch . . . an imaginative narrative sense, chaotic and even manic, but violently dramatic . . . excitingly new.” —The Los Angeles Times Book Review

“A clear triumph.” —The Plain Dealer

Dancing Bear is a powerful novel by a writer of extraodinary power who mixes humor with blood, environmental issues with cocaine jangles and post-coital blues, the Dancing Bear Wilderness Area of Montana with peppermint schnapps and hopelessness.” —The El Paso Herald Post

“Extremely well-written.” —The New York Times Book Review 

“If you like your detective fiction tough and tenacious you will love James Crumely. . . . No one does it better.” —The Houston Chronicle 

 ”James Crumley is a first-rate American writer…. pyrotechnically entertaining, sexy, compassionate.” —The Village Voice
