Product description

Review

PRAISE FOR OHIO BY STEPHEN MARKLEY

"Markley's ambitious foray into fiction reunites four high school classmates on a fateful summer night in their Ohio hometown, in what reads like a darker-themed epilog to Friday Night Lights...Markley's prose sparkles with insight and supports an intricate narrative architecture that recalls Nathan Hill's The Nix and Patrick Somerville's This Bright River...highly recommended for all literary collections."--Library Journal (STARRED REVIEW)

"In his bold debut novel, Ohio, Stephen Markley visits the fictional northeastern Ohio town of New Canaan to paint in vivid colors the shattered dreams and stunted lives of young adults removed by roughly a decade from their high school graduation. It's an intensely realistic and keenly observed portrait that puts a human face on subjects often obscured by statistics and expert opinion... a dark and deeply felt examination of a generation confronting problems that can't be solved quickly or with ease...it has earned a place in any conversation about the important role fiction can play in reflecting life back to us when we look squarely in the mirror."--Shelf Awareness

"Stephen Markley is an expert cartographer of the American Rust Belt and the haunted landscapes of his characters' interiors. A fast-moving and devastating debut."--Karen Russell, New York Times bestselling author of Swamplandia!

"Ohio is that rarest of unicorns, a novel that swings for the fences, and actually tries to explain just what the fuck happened to this country after the towers fell, and how we got to this awful particular moment. Stephen Markley goes for the universe with every single sentence he writes. That the universe answers him as often as it does makes for a hugely impressive first novel."--Charles Bock, New York Times bestselling author of Alice & Oliver

"Ohio is heartbreaking, frightening, and occasionally, amidst the sorrow and horror, transcendent--a novel that casts the clearest possible eye on people haunted by who they used to be and might have become, and a country haunted by the same. Stephen Markley is unflinching."--Kevin Brockmeier, author of The Illumination
