Product Details


“If you want to call Deadwood a Western, you might as well call The House of Mirth chick lit. Dexter looked at the dark, twisted, ridiculous doings of Bill Hickok and company, said to himself, ‘I recognize that! and gave us a world-class entertainment.” —Jonathan Franzen, author of The Corrections“Unpredictable, hyperbolic and, page after page, uproarious; a joshing book written in high spirits and a raw appreciation of the past.” —The New York Times Book Review“Splendid. . . . Rumor put straight. . . . A carefully researched knitting of events into their most dazzling fabric.” —The Philadelphia InquirerDeadwood may well be the best western ever written.” —The Washington Post Book World"What deepens and darkens [Dexter’s] writing, so that art is the precise word to describe it, is a powerful understanding that character rules, that we live with our weaknesses and die of our strengths." —Time"Dexter is a master of colloquial poetry, of moods revealed through gestures and settings." –-Playboy "One of the greatest American writers… a storyteller who cuts straight to the nerve." –Scott L. Turow"Dexter’s strongest suit is his exquisite understanding of the finely meshed engines of greed, appetite, and interest." —The New York Times Book Review"Great, eccentric characters….Dexter’s writing is a living thing." —USA Today
