Ray Petersen has written a great second novel. On one level, this is an erudite and spot on higher ed novel, in the tradition of Richard Russo's Straight Man or Jane Smiley's Moo. One another, deeper level, Petersen's novel is an inspiring story of how paper mill workers and their neighbors and families fight the forces of Reaganomics. The names of the characters are a hoot, and the plots twists and turns and poignant moments will keep you turning pages right to the end. Petersen is a keep observer of real people and he tells their story with grace and flair. He is one of the best contemporary writers when it comes to telling the story of working men and women and their plight in a political system stacked against them.
