Reviewed in the United States on July 26, 2014
Braunbeck is one of my favorite storytellers. I partially read this and partially listened as an audiobook and found what I always do when it comes to Braunbeck's works: make reading the #1 priority in my life. I stop whatever is going on and immerse myself in the story. I use every free second to keep reading and take twice as long as it should to read because

1. I don't want the story to end and
2. I find myself re-reading passages because of just how good Braunbeck is with language, cadence, and emotion.

Prodigal Blues was no exception. It's a tale of humanity, humility, and one of hope. It's also not for the faint of heart. You'll read it and say, "Nothing in life is that cruel, that unjust...that monstrous". And if you're like me, when you find yourself alone in a crowd--at a park, a mall, a subway stop--you'll add, "At least I hope it's not."
