  • Résumé

The classic novel of a small Minnesota town--and of one school teacher who calls it home

This utterly charming, deeply poignant debut remains perhaps the signature achievement of beloved novelist Jon Hassler--once hailed by The New York Times as “a writer good enough to restore your faith in fiction.” It’s the story of a week in the life of Miles Pruitt, a thirty-five-year-old bachelor who teaches high school English in Staggerford, Minnesota. And though it is only a week, it’s an extraordinary week, filled with the poetry of living, the sweetness of expectation, and the glory of surprise that can change a life forever.

Praise for Staggerford

“Witty, intelligent, compassionate . . . an absolutely smashing first novel.”--The Plain Dealer

“You’ll remember it for a long time.”--The Minneapolis Tribune

“One of the year’s truly freshly conceived and carried out novels, one whose not always so gentle ironies address themselves to a broader range of life than is to be found in Staggerford, Minnesota.”--The Kansas City Star

“A thoroughly convincing X-ray vision of small-town life . . . so sincere, so true, so honest with itself, and so very, very funny that a reader often has to wipe the tears out of the corners of his eyes before he can--as he must--read on.”--The Houston Post

“Very entertaining . . . [Miles is] one of the most likable protagonists of modern fiction.”--The Pittsburgh Press

“Staggerford, Minnesota, is a town out of control. It is as weird and convoluted as any lover of comic fiction could wish.”--Boston Herald American
