New Enger Novel Now in Paperback

In 2001, Leif Enger published his first novel, Peace Like a River, which has subsequently sold more than a million copies. Almost a decade later he published his second novel, So Brave, Young, and Handsome. The book was published last year and has just been issued in paperback (Grove Press). The novel tells the story of Glendon Hale, an aging train robber on a quest to settle the claims of love and judgment on his life, and Monte Becket, the humble writer in search of inspiration who goes with him on his quest. This voyage of redemption and renewal into the great heart of the American West mixes romanticism with gritty reality and dash of adventure.
