Review:

So firmly located and vividly realised that you can almost smell the Louisiana swampwater ... a gripping, action-packed tale, but also a notably intelligent one (Jem Poster, Guardian)

Astonishingly powerful ... brilliantly written and the characters in their mire are superbly realised (Toby Clements, Daily Telegraph)

An extraordinary novel, one of the best I've read in years (Annie Proulx, Guardian Summer Books)

I cannot recommend it highly enough. (Peter Straus, Literary Review)

Gautreaux captures the fetid atmosphere of a frontier society poised to join the modern world with great skill, each sentence polished to perfection (Independent on Sunday)

Near-perfect ... untouchably good (Alan Warner, Daily Telegraph Summer Books)

About the Author:

Born and raised in Louisiana, Tim Gautreaux lives there still with his family. His stories have been published in Harper's, the Atlantic Monthly, GQ, Zoetrope, Prize Stories: The O. Henry Awards, and Best American Short Stories, and collected in two volumes. Acclaimed as 'one of the best writers to have emerged in the 1990s' by Kirkus Reviews, his first novel, THE NEXT STEP IN THE DANCE, won the 1999 SEBA Book Award, and was followed in 2003 by the highly acclaimed THE CLEARING. In 2005, he was awarded the John Dos Passos Prize. His latest novel, THE MISSING, was published in 2009.
