The Stick Game

'“In other hands, melodrama could easily rear its head and trample the scenery, but Bowen has a firm grip on his large cast of interesting players, and what emerges is something quieter and more believable: a poignant, often funny tale about grace vs. greed.” —Publishers Weekly “Bowen’s rock-hewn hero is a solid man with lusty appetites. . . . [Du Pré] rarely departs from the present tense of language—and of life.” —The New York Times “Wonderful . . . wise . . . Hilarious as the satire often is, what makes these stories so rare is the byplay among the natives.” —The Washington Post Book World'
