Blurbs:
  • "Canty's forte is to examine human relationships with the precision of a Sue Miller or Louise Erdrich within the context of a fast-moving narrative. Once he's got you in his thrall, you're as helpless as his lovers in the hands of fate." Newsday
  • "A brilliant second novel that confirms the arrival of a major new talent in fiction." Minneapolis Star-Tribune
  • "Capturing the wide expanses of the American West with his characteristic acute gaze and cool, spare prose, Canty has produced a penetrating exploration of reckless love and loss. Smart, gritty, unsentimental...Finely tuned to the precariousness and treachery of human need." The New York Times
