"Shades of Larry McMurtry, and even of Charles Dickens! Spring Warren's Turpentine is a joy of a read that just might, all by itself, mark the resurrection of the grand picaresque novel. A terrific book by a superb new voice in American letters!"
"Turpentine is a magnificent yam, sweeping and intimate, luminous and brutal, hilarious, rich, and wrenching. Ned Bayard is an American hero in the mold of Jack Crabbe and Ebenezer Cooke. Spring Warren has given us a galloping read and an epic to savor for the ages."
"Spring Warren delivers smart prose that calls to mind masters like Charles Portis, Dorothy M. Johnson, and Larry McMurtry but in a voice all her own. Turpentine sizzles with comic misadventures, the right balance of pathos, and a strong dose of humanity. A delightful, mesmerizing literary debut."
"With a pitch-perfect narrator and a smorgasbord of sensory detail, Spring Warren brings the Old West back to life. Turpentine casts the rebirth of a privileged young man finding self-truth against the birth of a nation struggling to come together, in a novel filled with wit, brilliant characterizations, and descriptions that will leave you feeling as if you can still feel the dust of a buffalo stampede settling around you."
