I believe this is the last of Haruf's works that I had not yet read. It may be his most Faulkner-ish in tone and characterization. Pat Arbuckle, editor of the Holt Mercury, tells the reader the life story of his contemporary, Jack Burdette, man child with no moral sense at all, who wreaks havoc on his home town in general, and eventually on Pat himself. Elements of this story are very reminiscent of the Snopes Trilogy, as townspeople discover the treachery of one of their own, and find themselves helpless to avenge it. Almost entirely lacking in the warmth and humor that tempers life's set-backs and sorrows in Haruf's later work, this one is still potent and darned near perfect. The ending will dissatisfy many readers, I'm sure, but it is fitting and tragically believable.… (mer)
