批評家のレビュー

"In this collection of linked stories, Barry Kitterman brings the dusty, fertile San Joaquin Valley vividly to life and religious revivals, where the mountains rise high on either side, marking the limits of the characters' lives. Kitterman writes with a plainspoken grace, showing men and women who face poverty, disappointment, and loneliness with a quiet daily courage and goodwill.” (Heidi Jon Schmidt, author of The House on Oyster Creek)

“Barry Kitterman has outwritten Sherwood Anderson, leaped past Winesburg to baking, shrouded, razory Ivanhoe, in California’s lower central valley. Its people sad, sweet, grotesque, flint-eyed yearn and misstep with desperate dignity. Kitterman’s sentences are stunning as the silence that follows a scream.” (Bryan Di Salvatore, author of A Clever Base-Ballist)

“Dust and fog, Manzanita, redwoods and rabbit farms, the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra, which are occasionally visible on those rare days when the air isn’t too filthy these are palpable presences in Kitterman’s stories. The San Joaquin Valley, especially the town of Ivanhoe, is rendered with the kind of attention that only comes from love. Nobody who knows the Valley will ever question the author’s sense of place. Those who don’t know the Valley will feel like they do after reading this book. These are sturdy, no-nonsense, character-driven stories that make turning the pages a necessity as well as a pleasure. Kitterman’s book is superb.” (Steve Yarbrough, author of Safe from the Neighbors)
