In the Deep Midwinter
“Robert Clark . . . has an ear for dialogue that’s pitch perfect and an impeccable eye for detail . . . A moving and provocative novel, In the Deep Midwinter marks a fine debut.” Ruth Coughlin, The New York Times Book Review

“The most absorbing, most intelligent and most wholly satisfying novel I’ve read in a good while–certainly since Richard Ford’s Pulitzer-winning Independence Day . . . A beautiful and haunting novel of character.” Don Fry, Seattle Times

“In the Deep Midwinter comes along at a time when people have stopped talking about The Great American Novel. That’s too bad, because this just might be it.” Kate Tuttle, The Boston Book Review

“It has been a long time since the last American novel of such compassion, intelligence, and maturity.” Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World

“Clark unfolds the story’s moral dramas with rare assurance and grownup charity….” Pico Iyer, Time Magazine

“This novel deserves a wide readership and will especially appeal to sophisticated readers on whom Clark’s rich imagery will not be lost.” Library Journal
