What people are saying about Strange as this Weather Has Been:

From the tortured belly of the Appalachians comes a novel consuming in its desire to reveal the depth of grief caused by mountaintop removal. In Strange as This Weather Has Been, debut novelist Ann Pancake employs a poverty-stricken West Virginia family—a couple and their four children—to tell a story of catastrophic loss and redemption. These are characters you will love even before you begin the book, for they represent the people who are living in those blown-apart mountains and will keep on living there after you’ve read the last page. Orion Magazine

"Pancake...makes her point in Strange as This Weather Has Been in a powerful, sure-footed and haunting way: People aren't dirt. But they know when they're being treated like dirt, whether in the Lower Ninth Ward or the hills of West Virginia." - New York Times

"The best kind of reportage fiction: evocative and meaningful." Kirkus Reviews

"...one of the bravest novels I have ever read." Wendell Berry
