Reviews

"Will Allison's Long Drive Home is a sneaky novel, and I mean this as highest praise. Just as the narrator's misdeeds sneak into his conscience and then refuse to leave, so too will this novel's wry voice and beautifully drawn characters burrow into your heart and mind. A harrowing, terrifically tense, unforgettable book."--Brock Clarke, author of Exley
"In Long Drive Home, Will Allison reminds us how risky life is, how one bad move, one swerve from the right path, might set in motion a series of events that can destroy what we love."--Bonnie Jo Campbell, author of American Salvage
"Long Drive Home examines, with haunting elegance, how quickly one bad decision can descend into calamity. The dread grows with every page--as does the horrifying realization that the narrator's choices could be yours, and his tragedy could so easily be your own."--Lauren Grodstein, author of A Friend of the Family
"Will Allison is a natural storyteller. As he makes clear with his stunning second book, he also has a habit of writing poignant, compulsively readable novels. Long Drive Home is a gripping, elegant, morally complex, and vividly realized portrait of our time and place."--Frederick Reiken, author of Day for Night
"A lean masterwork of suspense, Long Drive Home is burnished, brilliant, and irresistibly alluring in its depiction of a man who, when beset by his greatest fears, finds only himself to blame."--Bruce Machart, author of The Wake of Forgiveness
"In Long Drive Home a fatal car wreck sets off a series of moral crises in the lives of an ordinary suburban family. At stake: race, justice, a couple's marriage, the future of their six-year-old daughter. Will Allison has written a wise and indelible domestic thriller: heart-quickening, heartbreaking--that rare thing: a genuine literary page-turner."--Porter Shreve, author of When the White House Was Ours
"In Long Drive Home, Will Allison displays a stunning understanding of the ways small unworthy acts can sometimes unravel us. This story of responsibility, regret, and one family's response to a single dishonesty is a powerful tribute to the complexity of human interactions. You won't soon forget either the chills or the compassion this book will evoke."--Robin Black, author of If I Loved You, I Would Tell You This
