QUOTES OF NOTELegend
Praise for Blouin’s previous novel, Chase and Haven:
“[Blouin] creates vivid images using a storytelling format that bounces readers from one seemingly random memory to another … each recollection revealed in the author’s beautifully lean and powerful voice.”
“With deftness and self-assurance, Michael Blouin has built an undeniable world in Chase and Haven. His crisp, Gowdy-like prose and cutting observations compel. Blouin knows what goes on inside of people, and between them – what is said, and what is unsaid. He is a storyteller to watch.”
—Emily Schultz, author of Joyland and Heaven Is Small
