Review--Epitaph

EpitaphEpitaph by Mary Doria Russell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this novel immensely, and expect it to join the canon of best western novels--Lonesome Dove, The Virginian, True Grit--in years to come. The characters come alive in a way we never saw on Saturday morning television shows, and the iconic gunfight at the OK Corral is dusted off and given new meaning.

This is summer beach reading at its finest: thoughtful, layered, absorbing and yet as much a page-turning, rip-roaring good read as any blockbuster climbing the bestseller lists.
