Clifford Jackman: The Winter Family (2015)


(morgan) #1

Just finished this one about a band of Union soldiers and their ill doings over 27 years starting in 1864 while the Civil War was still going on. “The Winter Family is a philosophical spaghetti western that doesn’t stint on the tomato sauce”, it says on the back cover of the Anchor Books’ edition. Not much philosophical discussion in this one, though, more like 300 pages with killing, only interrupted now and then by a regular massacre. Recommended.
