A welcome book on my shelf! 7 novembre 2013
Par Liana Andreasen - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This novel is both somber and funny, as it follows Buck through family feuds and to a real war; it is beautiful and haunting as its Northern Michigan nature mesmerizes over the seasons, but can kill the uninitiated; it is innocent and bitter as Buck the child matures into Buck the soldier, then into the disappointed veteran and wanderer who has failed to woo the rich girl of his dream; and it is hopeful and cynical as it follows the young character from a confused childhood among secretive adults into an adulthood with an unfinished business that his family places on his shoulders. In this seemingly timeless place, some characters emerge and charm the reader -- the real and the surrogate grandfathers, as well as the long suffering yet nurturing grandmother, the evanescent villain, Lester Cronin, and an assortment of friends, bullies, war buddies, homeless people, prostitutes, priests and pretty girls. Sometimes with echoes from Hemingway, Twain, Emerson and Faulkner, North Dixie Highway is a rich coming of age novel and a promising debut for its author.

A VERY FINE BOOK 12 octobre 2014
Par Kuemmel - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Joseph Haske's NORTH DIXIE HIGHWAY is a cogent portrait of a young Midwesterner at the crossroads of his return from military service in Bosnia and the integration of his war experiences with his prior life. The book comprises a compelling blend of interwoven recollections of war, nature, family, and death punctuated by vivid descriptions of rural blue collar blue Americana.

The text is prefaced with a quote by Emerson: "They know not well the subtle ways I keep, and, pass, and turn again," and the intellectual vacillation inherent in this phrasing is echoed in Haske's prose structure, which encapsulates and hovers over a sequence of pointed moments in time, especially relevant for the narrator's psychic development.

This is a very fine text with a beauty and clarity reminiscent of the best of American psychological realism. Its connection with current military crises make its investigations even more acute.

Masterfully Written 23 juin 2014
Par Mary McMyne - Publié sur
Format: Broché
A layered look at revenge and the deep ties of blood and family, this novel is set largely in the rugged remote landscape of the Eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Much of the novel explores a feud between two local families, which echoes across several generations. But this book is most notable for the unique voice of its narrator, Buck Metzger, a precociously intelligent boy who grows up in a family of hard-drinking smelt-fishers and bear hunters. Written in lyrical language and populated with characters of depth and realism, this is a novel filled with pathos and humor, violence and revenge. All in all, it's an engaging and masterfully written story that captures a disappearing way of life. I'm looking forward to the next effort from Joseph D. Haske, for sure.

Upper P, Lower Valley, Much Needed Glow 27 novembre 2013
Par BAC - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Joe Haske is a sweet giant of words. His knuckle-scraped prose will leave you blood soaked in the brain space. This back roads coming of age tale traipses cross-country, globe trots, and grabs your throbbing heart, deposits it in your choke throat.

Read up, Johnny. You dirty, dirty ape.

Your glorious, hideous, chicken-hearted liver eater.

Absolutely Superb 30 mai 2014
Par Robert H. Calverley - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Carefully combine poverty, alcohol, and revenge; spice with with sharply drawn characters; simmer on a stove fueled by hard family obligations and serve as cold as Michigan's bleakly beautiful Eastern Upper Peninsula and you have Joseph Haske's absolutely superb savory stew, North Dixie Highway.
