Product Details


Praise for Ironweed

“Rich in plot and dramatic tension…almost Joycean in its variety of rhetoric.”—The New York Times

“Astonishing…Kennedy’s ambitious vision and soaring imaginative powers make this book one of the richest, most startling, and most satisfying novels of recent years.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer

“A beautifully sorrowful novel.  Kennedy asks us again to confront the mystery of human behavior.  And as he illuminates it, we share in one’s man’s struggle to understand his life.”—The Washington Post

“Kennedy’s power is such that the reader will follow him almost anywhere, to the edge of tragedy and back again to redemption.”—The Wall Street Journal
