"Lucky Town is a beautiful piece of writing. Sometimes sad, sometimes funny, this novel is always accurate in its precise rendering of filial love and devotion. We are reminded, as art will do, that the human spirit is indomitable, and that the most ordinary lives can be utterly extraordinary in their tragedies and victories."
- Tim O'Brien
"A wonderful narrative...There is an utterly compelling nature to this vigorous tale of the pilgrimage of a son and his erratic, passionate father...Few writers possess James Brown's authoritative talent for dealing with such besetting familial ironies."
- Thomas Keneally
