No one writes like Stewart O'Nan--and that includes Stewart O'Nan. From this post-Civil War gothic nightmare of a novel to the familial/cultural drama of Everyday People, O'Nan simply cannot be pinned to a genre, a style or even a time. This book is my favorite of his novels, though. Duty, calamity and insanity all find true expressions between its covers.
