"Striking.... An author is lucky to bring one character so vividly to life: the gifted McIntyre has done it for all of his." --New York Times Book Review

"I felt as if I were reading a modern-day Middlemarch." -- Kate Christensen, PEN/Faulkner Award-winning author of The Great Man

A finalist for the Lambda Literary Award and the Publishing Triangle's Ferro-Grumley Award, Lake Overturn is the stirring debut novel of small-town America from critically acclaimed author Vestal McIntyre (You Are Not the One). With intricate plots involving an array of fully realized characters, and dealing with themes such as autism, homosexuality, religion, and addiction, Lake Overturn is sure to appeal to fans of the literary work of Russell Banks (The Sweet Hereafter, Affliction), Rick Moody (The Ice Storm), Augusten Burroughs (Running with Scissors), and Alice Munro (The Moons of Jupiter, The Love of a Good Woman).

Overall a really good read. I like complex, quirky characters and this book is full of them. The family relationships are particularly touching.

Very engaging book - rich host of characters who are all well-developed. However, the book kind of peters out at the end and sort of drops off abruptly.
