All Iowa Reads 2014

Little Wolves by Thomas Maltman

Little Wolves by Thomas Maltman is the 2014 All Iowa Reads selection. Does the title intrigue you? Do you judge the cover good enough to read further? Here's a short summary from our catalog:

Set on the Minnesota prairies in 1987, during a drought season that is not helping the demise of the family farms, the story features two intertwining narrators, a father searching for answers after his son commits a heinous murder, and a pastor's wife who has returned to the town for mysterious reasons of her own. A penetrating look at small-town America, reminiscent of Russell Banks' Sweet Hereafter or Affliction , driven by a powerful murder mystery, Little Wolves is a page-turning literary triumph.

You're hooked now, I can tell. Come to the library and check it out.
