Editorial Reviews

Review

One of the deep pleasures in reading Peter Wheelwright s gorgeous debut novel As It Is On Earth comes from the dizzying journey through the constellations of his protagonist s life as he attempts to untangle the Gordian knot of his family legacy. His world is messy and contradictory, saturated with desire and utterly intoxicating; it is a place where ideas about science and art and nature and history combust until secrets are laid bare. As in the best of novels, Wheelwright both broke my heart and gave me great faith in acts of forgiveness and in the tenderness of our hearts. --Lisa Fugard, author of Skinner's Drift

"Unlike his character Miryam, whose photographs of absent bridges depict only the supporting embankments that connect two sides of the earth, Peter Wheelwright, in this rich and moving debut, attempts to fill in those ghostly, empty polarities of space and time that we call family history -- and, in the doing, offers up a bit of America's history, as well.  Like a great bridge-builder, Wheelwright connects past and present, choices and consequences, hope and despair, fantasy and reality, all the while, like Miryam's sturdy embankments, remaining anchored firmly into the land.  A masterful balancing act; a beautiful, unpretentious, elegiac novel. --Joseph Salvatore, author of To Assume A Pleasing Shape

With a Yankee tap root breaking through layers of granite guilt and miscegenation, Taylor Thatchers' family tree is a challenging climb. From its branches overlooking New England's old farms and old colleges, author Peter Wheelwright peers compassionately at a world inhabited by young survivors of extinct tribes and inherited griefs. Fascinating and absorbing and forgiving. --Meryl Streep
