Praise

"With Winslow in Love Canty’s literary brilliance again shines through." –The Oregonian

“A fantastically eloquent portrait of an interesting and troubled mind confronted with beauty, grasping at it for hope and forgetfulness while basking in the glorious present. . . . Winslow in Love is a marvelous book.” –Chicago Tribune

"[A] bitter valentine to self-destruction. . . . Canty has whipped his prose into just the right tone, two parts gravel voice realism, one part looking for a chance at redemption." –The Denver Post

“Raw. Rare. Honest. Beautifully written. Winslow in Love is one of those novels that come along every now and then, making sense of the ruin and rush of our lives. The ongoing dream is to escape towards who we once were—and Winslow, a great broken-down drunken poet, manages to get there with a shattering grace. By avoiding all the clichés, by embracing sentiment without sentimentality, by taking the hard curve, Canty has written a significant American novel. Praise be.”
—Colum McCann, author of Dancer
