Quirky, intensely original...an intellectual page-turner...Chute combines strident political commentary with humor, surrealism, and inventive language. Her novel, like its authoris multilayered and complex, deeply critical of society but fiercely devoted to humans. "e;O Magazine"e;
Deeply felt, scorchingly funny. "e;Vanity Fair"e;
Legendary storyteller Carolyn Chute s return to the setting of her bestseller "e;The Beans of Egypt, Maine"e; has received rave reviews from the mainstream press, with the "e;Boston Globe"e; hailing "e;Treat Us Like Dogs and We Will Become Wolves"e; as unlike anything else you will ever probably read. Centered on one controversial man s attempt to create an alternative community away from the strictures of modern life and mainstream American society, and the scrutiny he and his Settlement come under when the media grabs a hold of their story, "e;Treat Us Like Dogs and We Will Become Wolves"e; is a multilayered, propulsive novel from one of our most daring and original writers.
A 700-page piece of wonderful, infuriating, narrative energy...This is the work of a writer at the peak of her craft. "e;Minneapolis Star Tribune"e;
As always Chute s voice is smart, funny, and fired up about righting the wrongs of the world."e;"e;Boston Globe"e;
