Often hailed as the heir apparent to Wallace Stegner, Ivan Doig is among the finest chroniclers of the contemporary American West. In Mountain Time, Mitch Rozier, who has spent half his 50 years writing an environmental column for an alternative West Coast paper, finds himself back under his father's roof, caught up in the ordeal of obligation - you can't not go home again when someone is sitting there dying.
The sisters Lexa and Mariah McCaskill wrestle with a past that has driven them away from domesticity and as far from their roots as they can get. Lexa has long been ready to settle down with Mitch; Mariah, a photographer who uses her camera to shield herself from the world, lands more reluctantly. And the figure from the generation that produced them, Mitch's father Lyle, both beguiles and exasperates as he attempts to rewrite events in his life before he leaves it.
“Mountain Time will not dissuade those who rank Doig among the best living American writers." (San Francisco Chronicle)
