'Twisted Tree' continues to receive impressive reviews

 Twisted Tree

Twisted Tree, the third novel written by Kent Meyers, a Black Hills State University English professor and writer-in-residence, continues to receive impressive reviews from regional and national publications.

Recently, Don Waters, reviewed the book for the New York Times. In the review he writes, “Meyers creates a stunning narrative of these stories, 16 in all, quilting together an intricate patchwork from confessions, remembrances, and secrets. Each chapter, a completely self-contained account, deepens our understanding of other community members while touching upon the mysterious circumstances of Hayjay’s disappearance. What’s most wonderful is Meyers’ casting. There’s not one flat, uninteresting character in the bunch. … Meyers isn’t squeamish about tough subject matter. He doesn’t shun life’s synchronicities, either. He embraces the ‘invisible filaments’ that connect one thing to the next.”

Meyers, who has been making public appearances across the country this fall, will make a presentation this week for a book club, the Mines and the Mind Reading Group, on the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology campus.
