In his follow up to The End of Vandalism, Drury depicts a quiet, Midwestern October weekend in the lives of the Darling family, whose members all want something without knowing how to get it: for Charles, an heirloom shotgun; for his wife, Joan, the imaginative life she once knew; for their young son, Micah, a knowledge of the scope of his world, aided by prowling the empty town at night; and for Joan’s daughter, Lyris, a stable home where she can begin to grow up. Sometimes together, other times crucially apart, the Darlings move through a series of vivid encounters that demonstrate how even the most provisional family can endure in its own particular way.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Drury is a big-time American talent, and Hunts in Dreams is his best book yet.”

    Jonathan Franzen, New York Times bestselling author of The Corrections and Freedom

  • “What a wonderful piece of storytelling…Drury is a truly great writer.”


  • “[Drury’s] gift for dead-on realism and unfussy dialogue reveals the humorous, edgy pathos of his characters and invests his story with ambiguity of real life and the poignancy of unrealized dreams.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Warm and funny…wry and weirdly edgy…Drury is an absolutely delightful writer who has carved out a world of his own in American fiction, one that is odd, revealing, and yet filled with love.”

    Library Journal

  • “Drury never misses a beat—the quiet moments dazzle as much [as] the louder ones.”

    Kirkus Reviews
