Broken Ground rumbles with metaphor, and the book seems to propel itself toward revelations about our individual, collective, and national spirit.
In John Keeble's extraordinary novel, Broken Ground, a social fable for our time, every element has its double in the illuminating realm of metaphor ... No other serious American novel has confronted so directly and so eerily the slithery power of corporate dominance over humble lives as well as over our changing, dehumanized landscape.
A deftly evoked, beautifully perceived novel about trouble and doubt, about the persistent trickiness of life. It is a fresh, wise, consistently engaging work.
