it was amazing
Read in November, 2009

Lyrical, insightful and very moving novel from an under-appreciated Wisconsin writer. After some initial literary successes with his earlier novels, Rhodes stopped writing 20 something years ago after a motorcycle accident left him paralyzed. When a new fan of his books contacted him to ask why he stopped writing, he took another look at the novel he'd been working on, and Driftless is the result. The story place in a small, western Wisconsin agricultural community. The characters come across, for the most part, as authentic Wisconsinites. These are folks you can picture yourself conversing with around a kitchen table. They are people you run into at the local Fleet Farm on a Saturday morning. They are individuals you want to get to know better.

Rhodes is a state treasure.
