Joyce Carol Oates on All True
We are beyond delight at having a jacket quote for the US edition of All True from the great Joyce Carol Oates, whose work I've loved since I read Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been? in high school. (I just finished The Accursed, her latest novel, a hell of a ride as usual, and am looking forward to sinking into her new stories in Lovely, Dark, Deep). Here's what she says:
"Alix Hawley has written a boldly original, mysterious, and provocative novel—the demythologizing of an American icon (Daniel Boone) and his reinvention as a figure of poetic luminosity. She is Cormac McCarthy’s young heiress, with a light and forgiving heart."
So make mine a triple this time.
