“Monument Road is a big-hearted novel chock full of memorable characters, a pleasure to read.”--David Rhodes, author of Jewelweed and Driftless
Leonard Self has spent a year unwinding his ranch, paying down debts, and fending off the darkening. Just one thing left: taking his wife's ashes to her favorite overlook, where he plans to step off the cliff with her into a stark and beautiful landscape. But Leonard finds he has company on a route that intertwines old wounds and new insights that make him question whether his life is over after all.
“In prose that might have been chiseled from the magnificent landscape he describes, Charlie Quimby has written a great big American Novel. Full of pathos and humor and sadness, you won't reach the end of this book without feeling fuller and wiser.”--Peter Geye, author of The Lighthouse Road and Safe from the Sea
