BOOK REVIEW

THE PAST LEADS A LIFE OF ITS OWN by Wayne Fields
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: April 1, 1992

"Mixing pain and uplift, Fields's plain-spoken moral messages seem appropriate to the time and place and sneak handily past the barriers of contemporary cynicism."
Fields (What the River Knows, 1990) now turns to fiction to write about the vanishing world of rural Middle America in a correspondingly old-fashioned way: In these linked stories, manhood has nothing to do with sexuality, everything to do with facing up to work, responsibility, and death.

BOOK REVIEW

SCRATCHGRAVEL ROAD by Tricia Fields
Released: March 5, 2013

"As in Fields' Tony Hillerman Prize-winning debut (The Territory, 2011): carefully integrated red herrings, a tinge of romance and dead-on descriptions of West Texas weather—oppressive heat, weeklong downpours and earth-obliterating mudslides."
