    One thought on “Hyssop”

    1. Hyssop is a beautiful story, so simple it is deceptive, a love story between friends, between lovers, between married couples, between the Catholic Church and her adherents, between everything and nothing. It fits in with magical realism of Allende and Marquez, grounded not in South America but it in the southwestern U.S. in the borderlands, and that Kevin McIlvoy manages to doubt and extol religion and culture in almost one seamless breath, is another kind of magic. I haven’t read such an ima [...]

    2. My book club read this and the author was our guest for this discussion. Our question to Kevin was along the lines of what were you trying to do with this book?Kevin's goal was to try to capture the voice of his characters. He wrote about the town we all live in, about places we know, and about events typical of southern New Mexico. With that as his goal, he did an admirable job. I could hear his characters voices because I knew where they lived. His painting of them was right on. Although I rea [...]

    3. One of the best books you have never read. This author is a former Professor of creative writing at NMSU. I like the person who wrote this book so much that it may be coloring my view of the Novel, but I still say this is one of the finest pieces of American Literature to be written in the last 20 years.

    4. A remarkable book about love, friendship, loyalty, and place. The love story between the two main characters is written with such love and tenderness, you'll weep. Really.

    5. Hyssop is beautifully written -- the characters will stay with you long after you've finished this imaginative novel.
