Product Details

Praise

“The dawning of the world’s hard truths upon this boy’s consciousness is depicted with a subtlety that . . . is something close to breathtaking. . . . We have here a book that looks for all the world like a piece of art.” —Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post
 
“I can’t remember another novel which captures a Midwestern childhood—that mysterious unwritten-about world. . . . It could have been my town and my life.” —Diane Johnson

“William McPherson’s first novel is an extraordinary, intelligent, powerful and, I believe, permanent contribution to the literature of family, childhood and memory. . . . From the first sentence of Testing the Current to the last, there is not one false note, one forced image. It is a novel written with great skill, and with love. It’s what most good first novels aspire to be.” —Russell Banks, The New York Times
