" 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."Elle
