Northwest Corner by John Burnham Schwartz.. Reservation Road author Burnham Schwartz takes us for a different ride with the same characters 12 years ... down the road. Powerful storyteller. Family crises to beat the band.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"In Northwest Corner, Schwartz delicately explores this broken father-son relationship, and how Dwight and Sam begin to reach out to one another…In short, finely honed chapters, Schwartz examines the state of mind of each of these wounded souls, drawing the reader into their fragile lives. This is a brilliant exposure of one modern family in moral crisis, a story that in some way touches each of us."


"The masterful Northwest Corner is that finest of things—a moral novel about mortal events."

Dennis Lehane
