What People are Saying About This

Stuart Dybek

Michigan, the state with the largest fresh water coastline, is our Third Coast, and writers such as Ernest Hemingway and Jim Harrison have fittingly laced their Michigan stories with its rivers. Freshwater Boys, Adam Schuitema's deeply engaging first collection, extends this tradition and, in so doing, renders an American Lake Country. (Stuart Dybek)

Kirk Farber

Freshwater Boys is filled with characters much like the lakes Schuitema writes about—dark, mysterious, and sometimes punishing, but also redemptive and forgiving. A wonderful, poignant collection of stories about men struggling to understand manhood. (Kirk Farber, author of Postcards from a Dead Girl)

Michael Zadoorian

Schuitema's Freshwater Boys is the literary equivalent of an early spring leap into the still icy waters of the bay: shocking, refreshing, cleansing. (Michael Zadoorian, author of The Leisure Seeker and The Lost Tiki Palaces of Detroit (Wayne State University))
