National Book Award finalist Ivan Doig writes about Big Sky country with raw authenticity. Set during the 1920s, Prairie Nocturne finds Susan Duff, the young songbird from Doig's Dancing at the Rascal Fair, now a middle-aged singing coach living in Helena. When her old flame, Wes Williamson, asks her to mentor his black chauffeur, Monty, she agrees. But racial tensions erupt when Susan's private lessons with Monty attract the attention of the KKK.

    " This book grew on me, but it took a while. I found Doig's writing to be distracting at first; it seemed like he was trying to hard. Also, the love relationship that develops was not convincing for me. But the book has a quiet, sad tone that appealed to me and has stayed with me. "

    " The one Ivan Doig booked I never finished. Doig's strength is his ability to write about families. This book isn't about a family. "

    " Must read more Doig. Loved his style, sense of humor, and his way of tackling of serious subject matter in such a human way. His setting is western - but I wouldn't call this book a western fiction. The story and unabashedly flawed characters are just plain universal... "

    " I listened to the audio version of this book. Given the importance of song to the narrative, the musical interpretation of the reader(Scott Sower) was critical. I thought he did a fine job with the different voices, and I really liked his singing voice, although it wasn't as good as I'd imagine Monty's to be. Now I'd like to go back and read his Montana trilogy, in which the characters of Susan and Wes were introduced. "
