Reviews

Don't start reading this book if you've got a dinner party coming up in the next few days, or a committee meeting or a golf game. You'll be calling people up with fake excuses and feeling bad about yourself... Snakewoman...makes no claim at all to being a great American novel, only a wonderful one. Washington Post Hellenga does ample justice to this fabulous set-up in a well-written narrative that is both thoughtful and action-packed...readers will once again find great pleasure in Hellenga's intelligent, generous-hearted work. Chicago Tribune Yes, it is a melancholy story, but it is also immensely satisfying and even uplifting in that unique way that only deeply felt life can provide. Booklist (starred review) Three reasons to love Hellenga: He's a fine storyteller; he gives us new eyes; he restores our sense of wonder. Attention must be paid. Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Hellenga is fearlessly inventive. Could anybody else combine snake handling, the Ituri pygmies of the Congo, life in a women's prison, learning to play timpani, a murder trial, and a poignant love affair in three-hundred-odd fast-paced, highly readable pages?
