Review quote

"By turns charming, provocative, impassioned [and] deeply moving. A complex portrait of Mr. Dorris as writer, reader, thinker, scholar, and parent.""--New York Times Book Review""Dorris's writing takes one's breath away. Highly recommended."-- "Library Journal""Though all the essays are grounded in a sense of private history, Dorris does consider, more generally, questions about the nature and function of history. In such pieces, the novelist becomes a cultural commentator, learned, persuasive, overcoming guilt by issuing a call for responsibility. Collectively, the essays evoke the pathos, joy, and mystery of unaccountable suffering and unbearable loss, of spiritual triumph and enduring love, conveying universal experiences in a simple and touching language."-- "Kirkus Reviews""Whether he is criticizing the film "Dances with Wolves," assessing fetal alcohol syndrome from both the national and the parent's perspectives, or describing what it was like to piece his son's era, Dorris the essayist always finds just the right voice."-- "Booklist"
