Cancelled - S. M. Hulse
*This event has been cancelled.
S.M. Hulse follows up her PEN/Hemingway Award finalist debut novel, Black River, with a book set in a small Montana town during a tumultuous time we would recognize in her fine new book, Eden Mine (Farrar, Straus & Giroux). “In this subtle, powerful, unflinchingly honest novel, S. M. Hulse takes for her palette some of life’s most vital subjects—faith, love, loyalty, family, goodness, God—and paints her story with all the skill of a master artist blocking out her canvas, tender stroke by tender stroke, bringing it to life. Each color more complex than its name, each line put down with purpose. As sweet-souled as it is clear-eyed, Eden Mine will linger with me for a long time.” - Josh Weil.
“No one writes about the contemporary rural West with as much intelligence, empathy, and honesty as S. M. Hulse. Eden Mine is a deep dive below the headlines, a novel about family, friends, and neighbors grappling with the aftermath of an act of domestic terrorism. It’s a luminous, deeply moving, insightful novel, abiding at the intersection of public politics and the most private of emotions. There’s nothing else quite like it.” - Molly Gloss
