Ivan E. Coyote is one of North America's most beguiling storytellers and the author of three story collections, including Loose End, which was shortlisted for the Ferro-Grumley Award for Fiction in 2006. Bow Grip, Coyote's first novel, is a breathtaking story about love and loneliness; in it, a good-hearted, small-town mechanic struggles to deal with a wife who has left him for another woman until a used cello and an acquaintance's suicide attempt compel him to make some changes in his life. With quiet authority, Bow Grip is about one man's true rite of passage - trying to keep the ghosts of personal history at bay with a heart that's as big as the endless prairie sky.
