"Lyric River is a novel with heart, real heart, and it may break yours. But it will also make you laugh and smile and fall in love with the characters and feel what it means to be alive and human and to live for a while in a real world. Lyric River is full of witty dialogue, touching love stories, and quirky twists like the odd attic boarder who thinks he's God. Lyric River is about things that count-family, friends, the search for love, for joy, and the river, always the river. The writing is finely crafted, drop dead gorgeous throughout. It's a sweet book set against a dark menace, in which life isn't always sweet or fair. But love, good cheer, friends, loyalty and the natural world help compensate for what humans do to one another. Lyric River is subtle, funny, sad, tender, loving, rich in thought and feeling-an altogether wonderful novel that deserves a wide readership."-Paulette Alden, author of Feeding the Eagles and The Answer to Your Question"I have spent my entire career reading and writing about the Mountain West, and few have been the times I have so thoroughly enjoyed a book about my home turf. Mac Griffith manages to capture the culture, the lifestyle, the vernacular, the various sometimes frantic and disjointed modi operandi of life at altitude in a way that is simultaneously enlightening, edifying and, most importantly, entertaining. His grasp of the eccentric characters that call the Rocky Mountains home is spot on. Lyric River is perceptive, incisive and flat-out a hoot."-M. John Fayhee, editor of the Mountain Gazette and author of Up At Altitude: A Celebration of Life in the High County, A Colorado Winter and A Colorado Mountain Companion
