Charlie Quimby reads from his novel "Monument Road"

β€œMonument 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.

β€œIn 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
