The Underworld", by Kevin Canty, is inspired by a true mining disaster. Set in a small Idaho town in the early 1970s, this novel follows three main characters: David, whose father and older brother both work in the mine, Lyle, who becomes trapped in the mine (as he is trapped in the town), and Ann, whose husband affected by the disaster. This is the first novel by Canty I've read, but it won't be the last; he has a way of creating both unusual and iconic characters to propel the plot with both wit and pathos, which I greatly admire

Everything, Everything is the debut young adult novel by Jamaican-American author Nicola Yoon, first published by Delacorte Books for Young Readers in 2015.

Due to this, Madeline is kept inside her house in Los Angeles, where she lives with her mother, a doctor.

In taut, exquisite prose, Kevin Canty explores the largest themes of life—work, love, death, destruction, rebirth—in the middle of the everyday. On the fifth of July, RL and June go down to the river with a bottle of Johnnie Walker Red to commemorate Taylor’s fiftieth and last birthday. Taylor was RL’s boyhood friend and June’s husband, but after eleven years, June, a childless hospice worker, finally declares she’s “nobody’s widow anymore.” Anxious for a new beginning, June considers selling her beloved house. RL, a divorced  empty-nester, faces a major change, too, when he agrees to lodge his college girlfriend, Betsy, while she undergoes chemotherapy. Caught between Betsy’s anguish and June’s hope, the cynical RL is brought face-to-face with his own sense of futility, and the longing to experience the kind of love that “knocks you down.” Set in Montana, reflecting the beauty of its landscape and the independence of its people, Everything is a shimmering novel about unexpected redemption by a writer of deep empathy and prodigious talents.

This guy is a hell of a writer---I found him through a new yorker story, which has been my main source of new writers for a few years now. RL is a classic character in the McGuane, Harrison, McMurtry vein. The women are interesting and well-drawn, and the descriptive language, to me, is the exact right amount of detail and poetic language. Good story and not a sad ending. Read it too fast. Write another novel!

Oh how I wish my daughter had continued college at UM in Missoula, MT (she transferred to U Wisconsin) and taken a creative writing course from Kevin Ganty. Then perhaps I could have had the opportunity to visit with such a great writer!

Ganty continues the great flow and tradition of wonderful author/instructors that University of Montana has had over the past 50 years or so. being a native I know, its the mountains.

The story, while similar in theme perhaps, doesn't read like anything you may have read before...it reads easily and flows freely and captured me from the start.

Well worth your time and money.

Perhaps she will take grad courses at UM and THEN I'll be able to meet Kevin.

Kevin Canty writes with a spare beauty. The book is designed so that there is a lot of white space on the pages and this space carries meaning. 'Everything' is about people who are lost, looking for love, recovering from poor choices and yet have a resiliency that carries them through their damaged lives with strength and a certain dignity. Canty's characters are able to tell us as much about themselves in their silences as when they speak.

The characters that comprise this novel overlap, and each chapter is primarily about one or two of the characters. There is RL, owner of a bait, tackle and guiding shop who has not had a loving relationship in years. He is a big man - in girth, spirit and appetites. He likes his booze and he wishes desperately for a woman. He was married for a while to a Dead Head who followed the Grateful Dead for years, leaving him to raise their daughter, Layla, on his own. Layla gives meaning to his life. She is nineteen years old and a college student. When not at school, she spends her summers in the Montana wilderness with RL where most of this novel takes place. Layla is recovering from a love affair gone amiss. RL realizes that Layla is not likely to be with him for much longer. He is trying to learn how to let her go.

RL decides to take in an old lover of his who is having chemotherapy for melanoma. In the back of his mind he hopes to resurrect some sort of relationship with her despite the fact that she is married. Betsy helps give some meaning to RL's life because, with Layla in college, he faces the empty nest syndrome. With his big heart, he needs to give. However, with his huge appetites, he also expects a lot from others.

June is a close friend of RL's. She was married to RL's best friend who died eleven years ago. As the book begins, June decides to give up her widowhood. Her husband, Taylor, was her great love but now she wants another love. Eleven years of grieving is a long time. On top of that, she is a hospice worker, spending her days with the nearly dead.

Edgar is RL's employee, an artist and lover of fishing. He 'knows' fish and feels at one with the trout that inhabit the rivers of Montana. He is married with one child and another on the way. He is trying to make some difficult decisions in his life.

Canty has an inimitable sense of place. The reader feels like the Montana mountains are looming. I felt the lushness of the land, along with the hard life the inhabitants face. This is not a land for the weak but it can be a land for the lost - an end of the road place where people depend on one another. There is a lot of alcohol consumption in the book but there is rarely a mention of television or movies. Despite the loneliness of all the characters, they depend on one another for sustenance.

The characters speak to us in what they don't say as much as what they tell us. This is a book about everything that makes us human - love, work, life, money, pain, joy, loneliness and connection. Canty gets it. His characters run the gamut of the soul. They are not sweet, nor are they urbanized. I pictured them in Carrhartts and jeans, rubber boots and down parkas. I felt their hands get cold and traveled with them on the dirt roads that were slick with mud or snow. I felt their pain and I soared with them in those rare moments of joy. It takes a fine author to take me to the depths of despair and soar the height of joy with his characters.

Another wonderful book by Canty is Winslow in Love.

It's OK, better than average good writing with some bite, a lot better then what passes for award winning novels these days, and a rambling, not entirely engaging story and cast of characters that I eventually tired of so I stopped reading two thirds through the novel. The narrative is kind of gimmicky with all kinds of line breaks, bold faced paragraph openers, and wide open spaces between lines and dialogue interesting and different for a while but finally unnecessary. My first thought on the page mechanics was like is this just padding to make the novel appear longer than it is but I don't know He's a good writer, the story's OK up to a point, and he writes well about the "wide open spaces," etc. but there's something essential missing. Hmm, what is it?
Let's see, maybe he's trying too hard to write about ordinary people who don't understand themselves and aren't doing much to further their understanding and going nowhere but to drink more, screw more, escape to the woods and streams more, and bang about life without much insight or direction as if that was a good thing. That may be OK for some, ordinary people, unexceptional, but these kind of folks can ultimately be boring.
