At the center of it all are Luke Crandall, Two-Speeds son, and Lukes best friend from his teenage years, Jeff Gruber. As they try to untangle their families painful and intertwined pasts, they also must face their own lives honestly for the first time. Orbiting around them and their families are Angel Finn, avuncular night fisherman- Arlene Schuh, the town gossip who knows more than shes telling- Eileen, the woman they both love- Pop Bottle Pete, the retarded boyman- and the ghosts who are as present as any of the living characters.Poignant and lyrical, The River Warren is narrated by seven different characters, their distinctive voices as rich as the muddy river that runs through the story.

Set in the farm country where the midwest starts to become the west, Meyers creates an unforgettable sense of place and community. The story moves back and forth through time, as each narrator offers the pieces of the story they know -- or think they know -- always circling closer to the mystery that ties them all together.A stunning literary debut that introduces a remarkable new voice in American fiction.
