The Country Ahead of Us, the Country Behind. From the best-selling author of Snow Falling on Cedars-an emotionally charged, provocative new novel about a teenage girl who claims to see the Virgin Mary. Like his novel, Snow Falling On Cedars, for which he received the PEN/Faulkner Award, Guterson's beautifully observed and emotionally piercing short stories are set largely in the Pacific Northwest. In these vast landscapes, hunting, fishing, and sports are the givens of men's lives. Ann Holmes seems an unlikely candidate for revelation.

his mother announced. And is this connected to the intercom system? Certainly it is. The whole house is. So you can call him for dinner. How convenient inner, said Paul’s mother. If dinner existed, yes. She laughed, airily, at her own words. The guests fanned out, looking at things with calm detachment, absorbed by the walls, the floor. Paul, his hands in his lap, sat on the edge of his bed and watched them silently. He has his own television, someone pointed out. He has his own television, yes, said Paul’s mother.

As usual, his writings are thought-provoking. Though this book did not reach the popularity of his SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS (which was made into a movie), it still is surely a most worthy read.
