Bright's Passage by Josh Ritter
Bright's Passage

Yorick_The_Last, January 1, 2012

Josh Ritter relies on his strengths and themes that he has honed as a talented singer-songwriter to make his first novel a true gem. I honestly cant think of a book with more beautiful imagery or lyrical prose. It may not have the challenging ideas or emotional impact to make it a truely great novel but it succeeds with distinction with what it tries to do. I already consider Josh Ritter to be the greatest songwriter of my generation, but if he gets much better at writing books he could be one of the greatest novelists of my generation as well.
