Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
More than two decades have passed since Woiwode exploded onto the literary scene with the novel What I'm Going to Do, I Think. Now, having written the distinguished novels Born Brothers and Beyond the Bedroom Wall , Woiwode has returned to his first novel's characters and setting in a sequel that matches the intensity of his early work while showing the finesse of his more recent books. It is seven years after the events of What I'm Going to Do , and Chris and Ellen are in her grandparents' cabin in northern Michigan. Chris is struggling to finish his dissertation on American poetry. But before he can come to terms with Roethke, Chris must reckon with his own identity. He seems conscious of his Native American heritage for the first time, but even as it starts to accrete significance for him, he blunders through a series of awkward encounters with local Native Americans, antagonizing a malevolent few. As in Woiwode's first novel, Chris (still armed with his .22) is the center of the fictional universe, while Ellen floats at the edges. A toughness, a brusqueness pervades the oblique forms of communication in Michigan's northern woods, and Woiwode has an uncanny ability to go from mystical transcendence to slapstick in the course of a page. Readers familiar with his work will be delighted with this novel, but it isn't a particularly good place to start reading Woiwode, as its pace and setting can become relentlessly claustrophobic for those not sufficiently initiated.

Library Journal
According to Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Freedman, 37.5 million Americans officially live in poverty, the highest since 1964 when the War on Poverty began. Unofficially, the real number may be 46.5 million, including many who used to be counted as middle-class. Freedman puts a human face on these numbers with several case studies showing how poverty affects infants, children, single parents, mid-life adults, and the elderly. He also describes the social programs that he considers to have been successful in aiding the people in these cases and that he thinks provide models for more inclusive ones. While Freedman remains optimistic, his case studies and statistics raise the possibility (he fears) that America may be sinking into a morass of poverty and social pathology akin to Third World countries. Recommended for academic and public libraries.-- Jeffrey R. Herold, Bucyrus P.L., Ohio
