Fiction. "Extraordinary...an ocean of beautiful and harrowing language that casts up its characters like great drift logs seen through heavy surf. The novella...speaks to and out of his refusal of artificial separations between the possibilities of art and the strictures of history.... Peter reveals a commitment to the beauty and precision of language--lyrical flights end-stopped by a sentence like a punch to the gut: 'People died trying.' This is writing that requires readers to think and feel in equal measures"--Jan Clausen. "Epic"--Christian Peet.
