Rhodes's writing is smooth and wry, combining Richard Russo's genius for the details of small-town thinking and Flannery O'Connor's flair for shading things toward the weird side of normal. If there was any justice in the literary world, its shocking end alone would make it an American classic. If you liked Driftless, do yourself a favor and read The Easter House.

Ansel Easter was a favored minister until he rescued a grotesque creature from a carnival sideshow. Taut, dark, and engrossing, The Easter House holds up as a brilliant work of fiction some 30 years after its initial publication. His sons, C and Sam, suffer in the shadow of their outcast father until his violent death. C and Sam leave the home their father built for a new beginning, and find fortune building a lucrative business called the Associates - but when a rash of deaths has the townspeople looking at C and Sam as suspects, they find their father's legacy reaches further than they expect.

Responsive Readings for the Modern Church.

After "Driftless" was published, it was so enjoyable I needed to read the previous books by David Rhodes. It was heartening to find out his early books were re-issued so I was able to read "Rock Island Line" and now "The Easter House". He is a remarkable writer in my opinion. His characters are so well defined, you feel as though you know them or knew someone like them in your own past. He can spin a fascinating story around each one. They all are books that are difficult to put down and when you finish reading any of his books, you hope for more. One wonders what he could have written in those years before his first book and the most recent. His own story is fascinating. I recommend David Rhodes and all his books.

I have not been able to finish this book and I'm not sure why..... My book club read driftless & I thoroughly enjoyed it so wanted to try another book by the author. He sets the scenes well & develops the characters well. There is a real feeling/mood about the story....
Hmmm-maybe I should go back and finish it.

Evey once in a while, I come across a writer who makes me want to put down my own pen because his or her writing is so impressive and breathtaking. How lucky was I to stumble on one with David Rhodes and this reprint of an old out-of-print novel! He's a powerful storyteller, and the writing leaves nothing to be desired. I would describe this as a twisted, gothic Thousand Acres if that wouldn't insult the caliber of his work here. A tour de force--highly recommended.
I too saw "Driftless" and picked it up first. I was so happy to see that Milkweed had reissued his earlier works. Excellent! The books are beautiful, lyrical, haunting all at once. David Rhodes is truly talented.
