Driftless

 
9781458768025: Driftless

When David Rhodes' first three novels were published in the mid-seventies, he was acclaimed as ''one of the best eyes in recent fiction'' (John Gardner), and compared favorably to Sherwood Anderson. In 1976, a motorcycle accident left him paralyzed from the chest down, and unpublished for the subsequent three decades. Drift less heralds a triumphant return to the Midwestern landscape Rhodes knows so well, offering a fascinating and entirely unsentimental portrait of a town apparently left behind by the march of time. At once intimate and funny, wise and generous, Drift less is an unforgettable story of contemporary life in rural America.
