Mink River is a very poetic yet often very real novel (aside from the occasional marvel like a talking bird or disembodied voice); the poetical and realistic exist in such a way that reminds me to find the beauty in the seemingly mundane. Plot unfurls as in a lyrical prose poem more than as a novel, but the language flows beautifully and river-like, happily with the occasional rapid. Nature and language and names and time and humanity and cultures blend and intertwine like currents, and I'm glad I swam in them.
