"In Adirondack Summer, 1969, Alan Proctor has fashioned a marvelous world that invokes nostalgia and realism (and even magical realism) to superb effect. It's a poignant, playful, intensely imagined book, written with grace and good humor and the kind of sentences all writers ache to produce. Highly recommended, whether you went to summer camp or not."
-Brian Shawver, author of Aftermath and The Language of Fiction.

"I'm a big believer in good first lines to novels, and Alan Proctor grabs you from the first sentence."
-Frank Higgins, playwright, author of Black Pearl Sings.

"This jewel of a novel ... reminds readers of the vulnerability and gifts of summer .... I fell right into the characters, the setting and the drama ...."
-Denise Low, 2007-2009 Poet Laureate of Kansas, author of Melange Block and Jackalope.

"Alan Proctor's Adirondack Summer, 1969, is a meditation on grief and loss, told with the verve of a John Irving novel. Proctor's vivid sense of place makes the novel's setting-an arts camp in the Adirondacks-a character in its own right. His cast, led by Deidre and Myron Cravitz, weave a gorgeous, often comic, tapestry of their delusions, loves, and dreams. Any reader booking a cabin at Camp Cravitz should prepare to be moved and entertained."
-Whitney Terrell, author of The Good Lieutenant.
