is an epistolary novel, as if it were Paul writing the Galatians. Layne takes on our separation from the land via our vampiric computer screens. A book that starts out cynical and frightening ends with hope." -FourStory
"In Ken Layne's new novel Dignity
, abandoned housing developments and forlorn desert strip malls become a creche
for a new society ... as refugees from the failing American economic system try to remake their lives. Highly recommended." -KCET Los Angeles
"The release of Layne's new novel, Dignity
, seems to codify his ideas--the mystical power of the deserts of the American West and a populist fatalism--perfectly." -The Rumpus
