"In Perfume River we are reminded of the masterful insights of Vietnam that Robert Olen Butler gave us in his Pulitzer Prize winning A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain, only now enhanced by the perspective and wisdom of thirty years’ remove. As Robert Quinlan enters his seventh decade in life, the fog of family relationships and his worldview become more clear once he encounters a homeless man." -- RH
