Rambling and generous . . . it reads at times like a John Irving novel touched up by Roy Blount Jr. . . . Sweet, sad, and refreshing. New York Times Book Review Edgar s] soul is as spotless as John Wayne s .45, and so is Udall s sharp and rangy prose. His similes sting, his sentences go bang, and his chapters roll like the wagon wheels across the harsh Mormon desert of right and wrong. GQ Extraordinary. . . . There are pages that are just fall-down funny. . . . It s like nothing else you ve ever read. Newsweek Vibrant, big-hearted. . . . A poignant, picaresque odyssey. ? Chicago Tribune A marvelous first novel. . . . An adept mix of humor and pathos. Los Angeles Times An ingenious tale that] takes its heart from Dickens and its soul from America s great outlaw West.
