Kent Nerburn is a storyteller, and The Wolf at Twilight ranks right up there with my favorite works of fiction. It has the same quality of insight, the same wacky sense of humor, the same surprising combination of comedy and tragedy, and the same rich cast of characters that made his previous book Neither Wolf nor Dog the winner of the 1996 Minnesota Book Award.
Every page has surprises. The book is a unique blend of fiction and non-fiction that can be read on many levels. It’s a mystery, for one thing, and can be read and enjoyed as a well-crafted mystery story filled with revelations and insights.
