Redeye: a western
A New York Times Notable Book. Hang on to your ten gallon hats--Clyde Edgerton has taken his eye for detail, his ear for humor, and his nose for the odor of religious hypocrisy to the Wild West. In REDEYE, he leads us back to turn-of-the-century Colorado, where a motley crew of innocents and scoundrels, visionaries and vultures, tells us How the West Was Made Safe for Free Enterprise. "A Hollywood pitchman might call REDEYE Eudora Welty meets Mark Twain. An admirer of good fiction might say that Clyde Edgerton has combined structure, character, and style to create a small gem of a novel."--New York Times Book Review.
