Praise

"An impressive, expertly crafted work of sensitivity and detail. . . . Powerful."  –Los Angeles Times Book Review

"[A] fine first novel that dramatically and accurately explores the lives of people who work the land in the stark American Middle West."  –The New York Times Book Review

"Kent Haruf writes so wonderfully. . . . His characters live, and the voice of his narrator reverberates after the last page: humorous, ironic, loving."  –The Christian Science Monitor

"Haruf’s gifts as a writer go beyond choreography. He has caught his prairie people with the skill of Wright Morris, the prairie itself with the sweeping eye of Willa Cather. . . . [I]t’s nearly impossible to believe this is his first novel."  –Rocky Mountain News
