The result is a novel both delicate and robust - a masterpiece."--Carolyn See. "Crimes litter the floor of California's great Central Valley like fallen plums.Old ties of blood, friendship, and memory are harshly tested, and a new menace blights immigrant dreams, but hope takes root lin the valley's generous yet unforgiving soil. Lyrical as well as epic, Riverbig is a remarkable achievement."--D.J. Waldie. ".funny, deep, sad, soaring.the work of a prodigiously gifted novelist who writes like no one else."--Aram Saroyan.

About this title


This broad-shouldered work of fiction the follow-up to Bloodvine, Aris Janigian s acclaimed first novel continues the tale of Andy Demerjian, the college-educated farmer. Set in California s Central Valley, and ranging in time from World War II to the drug wars of the 1960s, Riverbig is a poignant portrayal of life in rustic mid-century America. A beautiful evocation of the richness of human experience, this novel explores both emotional terrain and physical topography as it transports the reader through the valley and into the rhythms of rural life.
