Indie Next pick - March 2011 (chosen by indie booksellers around the country)


The quote on the Indie Next sheet is from Prairie Lights' Jim Harris:

"An abandoned young girl narrates this tale set in 1974 in a small Wisconsin town as it plummets and tumbles into heartbreak. 'You don't belong here,' the townspeople tell the mixed-race schoolgirl and anyone else who is not like them. Revoyr's voice vibrates with the spiritual and physical isolation -- without adornment or illusion -- that is reminiscent of the writings of Carson McCullers. The pacing is perfect, and Wingshooters captures fully the tragedy of personal rejection resulting from racial tension as it explores both connection and loss and the enduring bonds of family." --James Harris, Prairie Lights Books, Iowa City, IA

Daniel Goldin of Boswell Book Co. praised it in his blog recently

It's a beautifully written story, and we're already selling copies. We've had the inevitable comparison to To Kill a Mockingbird, and I've heard Snow Falling on Cedars as well. The enthusiasm for this small press title also recalls to me Montana 1948 by Milwaukee's own Larry Watson. More recently, I can see comparisons to Hillary Jordan's Mudbound.
