Product Details


“Fuller’s keen sense of engagement with a land ‘to which you now don’t belong,’ and her place as an outsider, make her a sympathetic storyteller. Her prose shimmers and vibrates with life in this excellent novel.” – Publishers Weekly      
“Beloved for the string of gorgeous memoirs begun with Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight, Fuller here depicts the Lakota people of South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, particularly two cousins in conflict. Fluidly written, with no sanctimony and plenty of dark humor” – Library Journal

“Fuller’s kinship with Lakota traditions in this novel is palpable.” – Booklist

“A lyrical tale of life on the Rez. . . A tender, wry homage to Native American wisdom and lore.”- Kirkus Reviews

“Alexandra Fuller has always been a brave writer. We count on her bare-boned, carefully-crafted truths laced with wit and wisdom. But in her debut novel, Fuller calls upon her imagination to explore what binds us together rather than what pulls us apart. Quiet Until the Thaw is a literary risk and a revelation.”  —Terry Tempest Williams, author of The Hour of Land

“One moment I am crying in sorrow, the next laughing and on the same page I am cringing. Honest fiction that exposes the reality of the difficulties of the Lakota Way.”   
Richard B. Williams, former president and CEO of the American Indian College Fund, and member of the Oglala Lakota Tribe
