New York Times Book Review
Alyson Hagy's recent novel, Boleto, received a review in the New York Times this last Sunday:
"With his graceful depictions of the embattled American West, Wallace Stegner remains unrivaled in his ability to humanize the clash between frontier beauty and “progress.” But there is always more gold in those hills, and Alyson Hagy isn’t a writer to mistake pyrite for something precious. In her third novel, `Boleto,' the alluring wilds of Wyoming and the horses wrangled there come with price tags affixed. The question is: Are we buying?"
