My Review of Benjamin Percy’s First Novel, “The Wilding.”

without comments

Benjamin Percy made some literary waves a few years ago with his short story “Refresh, Refresh,’’ originally published in The Paris Review and anthologized in “The Best American Short Stories 2006’’ and “The Pushcart Prize XXXI.’’ Later, Percy included “Refresh, Refresh’’ in a collection of the same name. In the best stories of that book, men battle their inner selves, wrestle the harsh elements of central Oregon, and struggle in their relationships with their fathers.

Read my review in the October 20, 2010, edition of The Boston Globe.

You can buy “The Wilding” at Barnes & Noble.
