Ron Charles…a strikingly original novel about a Puritan who comes to the New World in 1622. Without any cranberry sauce or witch burnings to spice things up, The Pilgrim offers, instead, the most intimate engagement with those early Americans that I've found in a work of fiction…With remarkable fidelity Nissenson imitates the jarringly stark voice, the intensely devout tone and the harrowing details of physical survival that mark writings of this period. He also retains enough of the period diction to sound authentic but not so much to leave us baffled.
