This is the story of a generation, shaped by the 60s, that has reached its time of reckoning, and of a man who must uncover the secrets of his father's past before he can live and love in the present. Mitch Rozier has spent half of his 50 years writing an environmental column for an alternative West coast paper. Now he finds himself back under his father's roof. Sisters Lexa and Mariah McCaskill wrestle with the past that has driven them away from domesticity: Lexa has long been ready to settle down with Mitch, and Mariah, a photographer, uses her camera to shield herself from the world. And the figure from the generation that produced them, Mitch's father Lyle, both beguiles and exasperates as he attempts to rewrite events in his life before he leaves it.

    " This book was pretty good. Lots of it takes place in Montana but I didn't "feel" like it was in Montana like Nicholas' Evans books. I think part of it is that this author, who is a native Montanan and sometimes referred to as a "Western" writer, refuses to just follow the conventions of the Western, including romanticizing the landscape or his characters. His characters have a lot of flaws and are very human, almost TOO human. Romances are messy and don't always make sense, and family life involves a lot of pain (the two main characters are "exhiles" who now live as Seattle yuppies). There is a good sense of humor throughout the book though and it's fun to read. "

    " Roots call you home for various reasons and this calling home is about a man from Montana who has to go home because of family reasons. This particular book of Ivan Doig's wasn't as compelling for me as some of his others. "

    " I'm still reading Doig trying to find a match to Dancing at the Rascal Fair. Mountain Time does not do it. Doig is always a great writer; his characters have a lot of zest. But this book just plays a zappy tune. "

    " This was my first Ivan Doig and I wasn't totally impressed. A fair amount of the conversations and thoughts of the characters didn't ring true. Sounded like a badly scripted movie or something. "
