I'm still wild about Benjamin Percy's THE WILDING

This phenomenal novel snarls like a grizzly and sings like a lark. Emotional depth and family conflict in the context of a gut-grippingly horrific father-son-grandfather camping trip in Oregon.

I read and loved The Wildingwhen it came out a few years ago; it really stuck with me. Percy has a new novel coming out in May, and I can't wait to lay eyes on it. It's just not that often that a book so cinematically exciting comes on with the quality of writing and breadth of character development that Percy delivers here.

Anyhoo. Highly recommended.
