Product Details


“Contains more dramatic events, bright dialogue, and strong characters than most novels twice its length . . . Kennedy’s best novel so far.”

“Absolutely dazzling . . . when this author writes about Albany, N.Y., he is, in fact, holding up a mirror to all of American history . . . [his] fictional terrain can be compared to the Faulknerian South in its complex richness.”
The Washington Post

“Powerful . . . with vivid characterizations, dead-on dialogue and brilliantly imagined scenes . . .his most commanding performance since his prize-winning Ironweed.”
The New York Times
