Editorial Reviews

Review

"A crazy, wild journey up an Appalachian Trail paved with the stones of aphilosophical quest. Lowery totes plenty of baggage on this walk fromGeorgia toMaine--Dante as his guide, with a soupcon of Pynchon, a nod to thepre-Socratics, Basho, Robert Frost, Shakespeare, Whitman and others,making the work akin to The River Why and Golf In the Kingdom.... Early on they meet Padma,a virtuous pagan (or is it God or the Devil?) who bestows upon them agift--guides to map the pair's way forward. These guides prove to beincandescent trials-by-fire, as is negotiating Lowery's writing--dense,probing, elegiac and as sinuous as the trail it charts, then becomingclear as a view from a summit.... Lurking amid the intellectual fuel are lovely descriptions of places--therhododendrons and trillium of springtime Tennessee... and utterly winning, joyful talk about campingequipment; the real Lowery as innocent, enthusiastic hiker abroad on theland. Deserves to be a cult classic."
--Kirkus Reviews (Star Selection for March 2011)

"Some are already sayingBret Lowery's American Inferno is destined to become a cult classic for anew generation, and they might not be too far off.... [Once] youwrap your mind around his extensive love of adjectives, alliteration,and cultural and classical references, you'll find yourself flyingthrough the pages. Lowery writes like a man after my own heart... his skilled use of language is arefreshing change from so much of the drivel that passes as modernliterature today.... [You] can't deny thatAmerican Inferno makes for compelling reading."
--San Francisco Book Review, July, 2011
