In a narrative voice like smooth bourbon, Matt Bell’s excellent debut novel is a modern folktale of opposing elements; lake and dirt, bear and squid, song and ghost. Told with quiet brutality, Bell finds heart and perseverance in nature red in tooth and claw as the unnamed narrator inexorably strives for the woman he loves and the family life he wants against forces vastly more powerful than he could ever hope to be.
