  • Optimistically billed as the next Stoner, this 1967 reissue is in fact the better novel...a rich and challenging psychodrama, based on brilliant characterisation... With its echoes of East of Eden and Brokeback Mountain, this satisfyingly complex story deserves another shot at rounding up public admiration

  • [Savage’s] prose is vivid and direct… [his] descriptions of nature have real power… a slow-burn psychological western.

    The Times
  • An exhilarating drama between two brothers set in Twenties Montana, and better even than Stoner

    Daily Telegraph
  • The shocking turn of the book’s final pages keeps the story bright as a blade to the end...This is the perfect example of a book that never quite made it to the rank of classic...but is more than worthy of resurrection now

    New Statesman
