Anthony DoerrWater Dogs is not a dizzying, hugely ambitious novel. Robinson does not appear interested in punching holes in the hull of American literature. What he has created, though, is a quietly commanding book, one that exists mostly within itself…In its rendering of the complicated, rich, mostly unspoken relationship between a young man and the place he lives, Water Dogs is a lovely novel. Robinson may not evoke the snow falling faintly through the universe, but he certainly evokes it as it falls over Maine.
