About this title
" A subtle, impeccably rendered new novel from one of America's most distinctive writers.
A woman and her young son are traveling together by car through the southern and midwestern United States in the mid-to-late 1950s. As the mother drives, she and the boy, Roy, talk about their lives, their disappointments, and their dreams. "Wyoming" exists as a state of mind rather than an actual place, a place neither the boy nor his mother have ever been, an idyll where the two of them can live an untroubled life. Told entirely in dialogue, the story of Roy and his mother traverses both real and imaginary states of being, on a tour through an uncertain but hopeful landscape of longing and myth. As Roy's mother tells him, "Everybody needs Wyoming."
Combining a spare and elegant style with profound and clear-eyed feeling, Wyoming is the most sensitive and touching work of Barry Gifford's brilliant career."About the Author:
" Barry Gifford is the author of Wild at Heart, Perdita Durango, Night People and The Phantom Father, among other books, and he co-wrote the screenplay for the film Lost Highway. His novels have been translated into twenty different languages."
