MEDIA REVIEWS

"This offbeat, droll debut novel from Reno, Nev., native Waters, author of the collection "Desert Gothic", concerns a disillusioned 30-something man's struggles to put his life back together after a relationship goes awry. . . . Though occasionally too quirky for its own good, this is a diverting narrative a of a young man's roundabout path to finding his way again."" Publishers Weekly", June 24, 2013


"Waters, author of the story collection, "Desert Gothic" (2007), sneaks some serious issues into what is most often a lighthearted, sometimes zany, account of a compassionate man . . . An entertainingly offbeat first novel." "Booklist", September 1, 2013

I deeply envy readers about to embark on their first trip to Sunland. Don Waters's novel is a zany adventure, a borderland thrill ride through the super-saturated Sonoran desert led by a rakish tour guide. A witty riot from first page to last! Claire Vaye Watkins, author of Battleborn "
"An unlikely drug dealer comes of age in a fast-paced, dynamic new novel of ethics and identity. In richly descriptive and propulsive prose, Don Waters s dynamic debut Sunland dissects the meanings of aging, manhood, family and the borders erected between people and nations, all against the backdrop of the unforgiving Arizona sun. His mid-thirties protagonist Sid Dulaney experiences a delayed, yet highly potent, coming of age in a novel that explores many questions, including how to separate what is against the law from what is ethically right or wrong. Waters, whose previous book, the short-fiction collection Desert Gothic, won an Iowa Short Fiction Award, offers finely tuned and fast-moving prose punctuated with unique descriptive language . . . While short, readable and fast-paced, Sunland leaves the reader with plenty of weighty matters for consideration long after the final page has been turned." ForeWord"
