Pressestimmen"In deeply layered, supple, and clear prose, Burkhardt captures the dramas of Maxwell's life... Burkhardt explores Maxwell's fiction as though opening a door to a new world, a world as wide as the prairie skies that define Maxwell's imaginative universe." Chicago Tribune "A valiant attempt to chart the relations between the stories Maxwell told and the stories he lived... William Maxwell rises splendidly to the occasion of his best novels and stories." New York Times Book Review "Very capably opens discussion of a long-overlooked writer, and sheds much useful light on his coming-of-intellectual-age." Washington Post
