A Gravestone Made of Wheat by Weaver

"Short stories like these make you feel good about American writing."--Kerry Luft, Chicago Tribune

"A memorable assemblage of meticulously rendered stories that generate warmth, humor and compassion."--Lucas Carpenter, Atlanta Journal and Constitution

"... a graceful collection, one that views America's heartland with a charitable but candid eye."--Andy Solomon, New York Times Book Review

A Gravestone Made of Wheat is a collection of stories set against the beauty of Midwestern farm landscapes and small-town life. In every story Weaver brings sympathy and sensitivity to the rhythm and variety of American life-- illuminating the lives of the down-and-outs and the indomitable among us-- and in the process he solidifies his promise as one of our most gifted new writers.
