"After trying to help Benjamin Pearl, an undernourished, nearly feral eleven-year-old boy living in the Montana wilderness, social worker Pete Snow comes face-to-face with the boy's profoundly disturbed father, Jeremiah. With courage and caution, Pete slowly earns a measure of trust from this paranoid survivalist itching for a final conflict that will signal the coming End Times. But as Pete's own family spins out of control, Pearl's activities spark the full-blown interest of the FBI, putting Pete at the center of a massive manhunt from which no one will emerge unscathed. In this shattering and iconic American novel, Smith Henderson explores the complexities of freedom, community, grace, suspicion, and anarchy, brilliantly depicting our nation's disquieting and violent contradictions" --… (mere)

Very well-written and engrossing, though very bleak. It sort of meandered (wyomed?) there for a bit in the middle third. And the gimmick of the last page has aggravated me into taking half a star away. Otherwise, 4.5. ( )

Disjointed in parts, mainly the awkward "interviews" with Rachel, but still an intriguing read. I found myself very taken in by the plight of this story's anti-hero. Henderson's blurring of the characterizations of the so-called good guys and bad guys fascinates. ( )

Kind of heavy to read around the holidays but a great book! ( )

Wow. That's all I can say. ( )

Long before Smith Henderson, the author of this not-to-be-missed first novel, makes it explicit, it’s clear that to work for the Department of Family Services in a job like Pete’s is to grapple with every form of human frailty and to try to bring salvation rather than pass judgment. The book’s deeply persuasive message is “that all of life can be understood as casework.” And Pete serves as something of a secular priest.

The mother collected unemployment but her full-time occupation was self-pity.
She could be seen around town powdered white and made up in slashes of red around her mouth and blue around her eyes like an abstract of the American flag, some kind of commentary on her country, which of a sort she was.
"You come clothed in weakness, but I know what stands behind you. You insinuate yourself among good people and you rot them from the inside with your diseases and mental illnesses." Crazy talk.
How trout looked in that water, brown and wavering and glinting all the colors there were and maybe some that didn't really exist on the color wheel, a color, say, that was moss and brown-spotted like peppercorns and a single terra-cotta-colored stone and a flash of sunlight all at once. That color existed in the water here.
Problem bears broke into places up around here, but he hadn't had any trouble. The very idea of problem bears. A problem for who. Did the bears talk about problem people.
