An entirely new kind of road novel. ("The New York Times Book Review") Meticulously and compassionately observed, audaciously conceived, and infused with a dry wit, Waltons first novel is a small gem. ("Publishers Weekly") Finely written, moving, and absolutely fresh in its every conception. (Richard Ford)
