In the Wall Street Journal, Joseph Rago reviews the new collection edited by O. Alan Weltzien of the University of Montana and notes: “The action in Maclean’s autobiography-infused fiction is outwardly simple, rich in suggestion. The prose derives its power from words and their sounds and cadences: Meaning is unstated but nonetheless intensely felt. Nothing much happens, in other words, except everything.”
