When David Rhodes burst onto the American literary scene in the seventies, he was hailed as “a brilliant visionary” (John Gardner), and compared to Sherwood Anderson and Marilynne Robinson. In Driftless, his “most accomplished work yet” (Joseph Kanon), Rhodes brought Words, Wisconsin to life in a way that resonated with readers across the country. Now with Jewelweed, this beloved author—acclaimed as “encompassing and incisive, comedic and profound” (Booklist)—returns to the same out-of-the-way hamlet, and introduces a cast of characters who all find themselves charged with overcoming the burdens left by the past, and finding a new sense of belonging in the present moment, sometimes with the help of peach preserves or pie.After serving time for a dubious conviction, Blake Bookchester is paroled. He returns to his father’s house, to a job arranged by the preacher who lobbied for his release, and to yearnings for the woman he loved. The story of Blake’s hometown is one of challenge, change and redemption, of outsiders and of limitations, and simultaneously one of supernatural happenings and of great love. Each of Rhodes’ characters—flawed, deeply human, and ultimately universal—approach the future with a combination of hope and trepidation, increasingly mindful of the importance of community to their individual lives.Rich with a sense of empathy and wonder, Jewelweed offers a vision in which the ordinary becomes mythical, and the seemingly mundane is transformed into revelatory beauty.
