Coyote Reviewed at Washington Ind. Review of Books

Coyote-Colin-Winnette-cover-thumbColin Winnette’s Coyote was reviewed by Holly Smith at Washington Independent Review of Books.

This question, from a disembodied voice, gets put forth throughout the tale. Sometimes the mother answers, sometimes the father. Sometimes no one. We never learn who’s asking, just as we never learn the parents’ names, the vanished child’s name, or the specifics of place or time. There aren’t even any quotation marks.

What there is, though, is a mounting sense of dread as the man and woman lash out at themselves and each other, drawing ever tauter and snapping strand by strand as the days go by.
