Author of 11 books, including a finalist for the National Book award, Ivan Doig is hailed as the "West's preeminent literary novelist" by the Denver Post. When a widowed rancher hires a housekeeper to help with his three young sons, he discovers that she is cheerful and competent. Yet she is concealing a colorful and infamous past. Filled with humor and hardship, Doig's novel sings with what he calls "a poetry of the vernacular."
The Whistling Season
So well written! Complex, detailed sentences which paint a precious story. It was a pleasure to find a clean well written book. This is one of my all time favorites.
Whistling in The Rain
A real treat. Fantastic writing. Doig is a master storyteller. Beautifully read.
