Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
A tragic act of violence echoes through a small Minnesota town

Set on the Minnesota prairie in the late 1980s during a drought season that’s pushing family farms to the brink, Little Wolves features the intertwining stories of a father searching for answers after his son commits a heinous murder, and a pastor’s wife (and washed-out scholar of early Anglo-Saxon literature) who has returned to the town for mysterious reasons of her own. A penetrating look at small-town America from the award-winning author of The Night Birds, Little Wolves weaves together elements of folklore and Norse mythology while being driven by a powerful murder mystery; a page-turning literary triumph.

Review:
Amazon Best Books of the Month, January 2013: What a moody, brooding, and myth-soaked thriller. It’s as if Maltman dropped '50s-era Raymond Chandler characters onto the drought-wracked prairies of 1980s Minnesota, and the translation works really well. In the opening pages, Grizz Fallon learns that his son has killed the sheriff and himself, while the new pastor’s wife stews over her uneasy return to her former hometown and her strange, brief friendship with Fallon’s troubled son. Haunting and gothic, with spooky hints of mythology and the supernatural, this is more than a gritty small-town murder story. Like the best of Cormac McCarthy, Little Wolves is a deeply moving exploration of the nature of violence and the secret selves we all strive to keep hidden. -- Neal Thompson

Book Description: Soho Press, 2013. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "This novel churns with the tension of a building prairie thunderstorm. Tom Maltman knows that dark truths can be hidden under open skies, and he knows the secrets of the bloodstained ax in the barn."- John Reimringer , author of Vestments "The poetry of this prose and the suspense of the plot, along with the intensity of characterization will have many readers comparing Thomas Maltman to Cormac McCarthy-that greatest of compliments-for very good reason. This novel is a work of high art by the real thing."- Laura Kasischke, author of Space, in Chains and The Life Before Her Eyes "A complicated portrait of a prairie town, a meditation on violence, a fantasia of myth and folklore, and a knockout murder mystery, Little Wolves is haunting, at times terrifying, a gothic cousin to Kent Haruf's Plainsong. I loved this book." - Benjamin Percy , author of Red Moon , The Wilding and Refresh, Refresh "Everything about this book asks us to examine life more closely." - Elizabeth Cox , Author of The Slow Moon "My overwhelming sensation upon reading this book is that it is a masterwork of fiction. Not just a good book that's interesting on multiple levels, but a great book that will stand the test of time. From the rich setting to the compelling characters, from the subtle but very powerful thread that fairy tales weave throughout the narrative to the suggestive implications of the power of story, I was completely spellbound. Add to this the mysteries surrounding the town and characters, and I felt, often, as though I were reading some contemporary version of Dosteovesky." - Peter Geye , author of Safe from the Sea "Absolutely fantastic. Unnerving, gorgeously written. The writing is haunting." - Caroline Leavitt , author of Pictures of You PRAISE FOR THE NIGHT BIRDS "We all set our sights on the Great American Novel. . . . [Thomas Maltman] comes impressively close to laying his hands on the grail."--Madison Smartt Bell, Boston Globe "Thomas Maltman's debut novel, The Night Birds , soars and sings like a feathered angel."-- Chicago Sun-Times From the Hardcover edition.
