Fourth of July Creek

Editorial reviews

Fourth of July Creek

There is much of early Russell Banks in Pete’s keen awareness of his failings and desperate yearning for the decency that remains just out of reach.

If you are looking for a serious, engrossing book with which to start your summer, FOURTH OF JULY CREEK is where you should begin.

This richly plotted novel is another sign, if any were needed, that new fiction writers are still telling vibrant, essential stories about the American experience.
