From the Soho Press website: Set on a barren Minnesota prairie devastated by drought, Little Wolves is a close examination of tradition, in storytelling and faith, as well as the story of a town searching for answers after a young man commits a heinous crime. The boy’s father, now an outcast from the small community, finds an unlikely ally in his son’s former teacher, whom the boy mysteriously visited the day of the murder. Local legends–crafted, just as in ancient times, to explain loss and change–deepen the sense of place that Maltman’s deep ties to the Minnesota prairies and Northwoods bring to the book. Above all, this is an elegiac love letter to Maltman’s home, even its darkest parts.
Thomas Maltman has an MFA from Minnesota State University, Mankato, and lives in the Twin Cities. His first novel, The Night Birds, won an Alex Award, a Spur Award, the Friends of American Writers Literary Award, and was also chosen by the American Library Association as an “Outstanding Book for the College Bound.”
