Latest pick from Storyhouse Bookpub
Nickolas Butler's authorial voice is stalwart as ever, turning toward the natural world and working people with perceptive and unsentimental regard. Even as this story marks a divergence from his beloved Wisconsin landscape for the tourist destination near Jackson Hole, he does not diverge from what he does best: capturing the halting dynamics of male friendships and fractured emotions. The simple plot—a fledgling construction company is hired to build an elaborate house in the middle of nowhere for an eccentric millionaire—turns into an eery page-turner as the amateur builders race against time, brutal elements, and their own demons to complete the project. The story will leave you thinking about our country's widening wealth gap and obsession with capitalism and how work invites both meaning and menace into our lives. I am still grappling with the outcomes Butler gives his characters, but highly recommend reading Godspeed to decide for yourself—you'll fly through it.Abigail
