So Brave, Young and Handsome ~ Leif Enger

book jacketThe author of Peace Like a River has written another well-crafted novel.  Monte Becket is an author whose one book was a huge success. He is under great pressure to write another blockbuster, but has a severe case of writer’s block.  His story starts in Minnesota in 1915 when a white-haired stranger rows by on the river near his property. Thus starts a long, strange journey for Monte that will involve outlaws, a Pinkerton detective and a circus.  Part western, part historical fiction, this novel is so well written readers will find the end sooner than they would like.
