About this title

Synopsis:

Loyal Blood is forced to abandon his Vermont farm when he commits the most terrible of crimes. So begins an American odyssey stretching from New England to California. On his journeys, Loyal mines gold, prospects for uranium, grows beans, ranches, traps and hunts for fossils.

Review:

‘Proulx has come close to writing “the great American novel”.’ New York Times

‘The richness of America is portrayed with memorable effect in this remarkable first novel – Faulkner springs to mind. “Postcards” is written from the heart and – for its raspy dialogue, laconic humour and beautiful description of the natural world – deserves to be widely read.’ Independent on Sunday

‘A sweeping and dramatic tale. Not since Steinbeck has the migrant worker's life been so evocatively rendered.’ Daily Telegraph

‘A remarkable novel; poetic and yet driven by a strong narrative, tragic and yet scored with deep veins of humour. Loyal Blood is one of those rare, haunted characters who continue to live in the mind after you finish the book.’ Literary Review
