Praise for Deirdre McNamer's Red Rover

An engaging and propulsive read that stirs profound emotions - Alice Munro

A rare and considerable achievement, stunning actually... McNamer is a master weaver of prose. - Jim Harrison 

...vividly observed and original... - Richard Ford

Such is the richness of the writing that one is constantly engaged with it on the levels of language, imagery, and wit, even as one is responding to the appeal of the story itself. - Lydia Davis

...not a stitch is dropped in this remarkable book.  - Tom McGuane

A harshly lovely lonely story played out against Montana's harshly lovely lonely land.

- Joy Williams 

This is a book filled with the most perceptive kind of love for its characters, and sorrow for what they have to endure.  - Jim Shepard

Additional praise - My Russian, One Sweet Quarrel, Rima in the Weeds

It’s a riveting novel, written with grace and assurance.  - Ann Beattie, My Russian

A work of extraordinary beauty….[McNamer’s] understanding of human nature and her ability to convey it to readers makes her one of the more remarkable writers of our times.  - Milwaukee Journal, One Sweet Quarrel

A splendid novel….Nothing that happens is quite what you’d expect, just as no one is quite what they seem on the surface. Everything packs a secret punch.  - Chicago Tribune, Rima in the Weeds
