Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this award-winning collection of linked short stories set in the American West, Pritchett balances gritty material with genuine warmth and understanding of character.

Synopsis:

Winner of the Milkweek National Fiction Prize, in this collection of linked short stories, Laura Pritchett balances gritty material with genuine warmth and understanding of character. Hells Bottom is more than a ranch. Home to Renny, one of those women who prefers “a little Hell swirled with their Heaven,” and her husband, Ben, whos “gotten used to smoothing over Rennys excesses,” the ranch has been the site of births and deaths of both cattle and children, as well as moments of amazing harmony and clear vision. A day of haying turns violent in “A New Name Each Day,” while in “Rattlesnake Fire,” Ben and his estranged sister must decide whether to put aside their differences to save families trapped by a forest fire. In Pritchetts masterful hands, the western landscape becomes a zone of familial crisis and, sometimes, transcendence.
