Noted nonfiction author Brian Payton moves to fiction with his beautifully written novel which is set in Alaska, and features the only battle (after the attack on Pearl Harbor) to take place on American soil. The Wind Is Not A River (Ecco/HarperCollins) is about conflict come to a place that thought itself far from such: the Aleutian Islands. “Beautifully written, lyrical and elegiac, The Wind Is Not a River is a novel you must read, because the battle for the Aleutians too often has been erased or forgotten, and because John Easley’s struggle to survive and his wife Helen’s struggle to find him form the most triumphant and heartbreaking love story I’ve read in years.” – David Vann. “The Wind Is Not a River has a power that brings to mind the old Greek stories of war, love, and journey.” – Ron Rash.
