Overview

Dingley Falls by Michael Malone

Praise for Dingley Falls

"Witty, intelligent, deeply felt, and vividly narrated."

-New York Times Book Review

"A wonderous achievement. Malone's novel is as lusty, whimsical, tragic- even as bizarre-as life itself. It is a triumph of the highest order."

-Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Dingley Falls is a wonderful novel, impressive in every way and constantly entertaining. Everything in this book sparkles and rings true."

-Chicago Tribune

"If not the Great American Novel...Dingley Falls is surely the Great American Comedy. The two may just be synonymous."

-St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"A lovable, sprawling, old-fashioned kind of novel, full of energy and gems of characterization."

-Washington Post Book World

"In Dingley Falls, Malone has produced a remarkable work of fiction...He combines humor, compassion, and literate writing with a storytelling ability that is rare in contemporary fiction."

-Houston Chronicle

One day your small town is quietly its normal self, humming along in comforting consistency. And then-all of a sudden-strange lights are coming from the forest.

Not to mention the odd rash of hate mail popping up. And in all honesty, what is with these odd pairings of couples suddenly coming together?

Welcome to Dingley Falls, where the only thing certain is that life will never be the same. Spend a week in Dingley Falls, and once you've visited, it will be a place you'll never forget.

From New York Times bestselling author Michael Malone, Dingley Falls is a triumph of rollicking joy and masterful storytelling.

I really enjoyed this book. Strange, in many ways, but a good example of what happens when we long for what we see every day and fail to learn how to manage our ability to have it. Worth reading.
