Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Paul Watkins is without question one of the most gifted writers of his generation. A storyteller to his bones, he also has language, and a particularly masculine tenderness, and a restless curiosity. The result is work of astonishing variety and range.” —Tobias Wolff

“Crisp, satisgying . . . The forest over which the characters are struggling takes on a memorable vibrancy and life.” —Elle

“Rich characterizations and a seamless narrative bring to raoring life this tale of environmental conflict . . . Watkins evokes the grandeur of the woods as well as the wild unpredictability of both natural and social violence.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
