Praise For Bucking the Sun…
The Washington Post
Bucking the Sun is one of the books that takes you over as you read it, invading your daydreams, lodging its cadences in your brain, summoning you back to the page.
E. Annie Proulx
author of Accordion Crimes and The Shipping News
Ivan Doig is one of the best we've got -- a muscular and exceedingly good writer who understands our hunger for stories.
Doig now has to be considered the premier writer of the American West.
Bucking the Sun...derives its narrative energy from as tangled a web of familial and psychosexual rivalries as one is apt to encounter this side of Hamlet or The Brothers Karamazov.
San Francisco Chronicle
Doig has achieved his most adroit blend of fact and fancy in what is perhaps his best book since This House of Sky. What sets Doig apart from others who have farmed the same terrain is the deft way he handles the fruits of his research; fact and anecdote are woven into the text with a light and often humorous touch.
