Product Description:

Dancing At The Rascal Fair

Review:

Michael Dorris

"The Seattle Times"

Magnificent...."Dancing at the Rascal Fair" further establishes its author in the front ranks of contemporary American wrriters.



Henry Kaisor

"Chicago Sun-Times"

Doig's prose is so muscular and sculpted, so simple and purposeful that I can think only of Edward Hoagland and Wallace Stegner as Doig's equals.



Lee K. Abbott

"The New York Times Book Review"

Against this masterfully evoked backdrop. Mr. Doig addresses his real subject: love between friends, between the sexes, between the generations....His is a prose as tight as a new thread and as special as handmade candy...."Dancing at the Rascal Fair" races with real vigor and wit and passion.



Pamela Guillard

"San Francisco Chronicle"

Dazzling...I find myself filled With such high praise for this book that instead of relating paltry bits of it, I want to quote the whole glorious thing....Doig plunges right in and, while giving us a gorgeous story, simultaneously peels that tale back to expose, the nubbins of human despair -- injustice, failure, and that incalculable restlessness exemplifled by the immigrant.
