Opinion

From Library Staff

Despite being a work of fiction, Doyle perfectly captures the eccentric spirit of a small town on the Oregon coast, where it seems perfectly plausible that a crow would talk.

The intertwining stories of a town's people come together in a lyrical mix of natural history, poetry, and Salish and Celtic lore that offers crime, heartaches, celebrations, healing, and death.

Brings a town to life through the jumbled lives and braided stories of its people.

If you can't get to the ocean, enjoy Doyle's evocative story of a small coastal town in the Pacific Northwest. My favorite character - the talking crow.

Exuberant, richly detailed, brilliantly imagined. If you enjoy poetry and magical realism, this book is for you. Highly recommended!

I am really loving the poetry of this novel, quite unlike anything I've read before. I'm not sure which Doyle loves more - the texture and tumble of words or the place about which he is writing. Either way, this is a rich and satisfying read.
