"McAdams captures each moment of longing and discovery with skillful and delicately nuanced prose." —World Literature Today
"Driven with beautiful balance by stories and characters, Janet McAdams's Red Weather breathes new life into the radical legacy of the Native 1970s. In prose that recalls Joan Didion's Salvador, McAdams offers reasons to hope for rain, dawn, and even justice—but she reminds us, as well, that hope has a price." —Robert Warrior
"McAdams balances the theme of the personal mystery with the complicated nature of the historical references to successfully negotiate this consuming story." —North American Review
"Janet McAdams is a writer with a powerful and original voice, as readers of her poetry know well. Red Weather is an outstanding novel, from first graceful page to last. It's a captivating debut that will surely introduce this important writer to new readers, even as it rewards her dedicated fans." —Katharine Weber, author of The Memory of All That, True Confections, and Triangle
