Revue de presse :

Daniel Woodrell is the American writer we increasingly look to for the latest urgent news on the American soul. The Maid's Version is a beautiful engine of a novel, whose cogs were not entirely made by human agency, one might hazard to say. ( Sebastian Barry)

A captivating, almost operatic narrative of how tragedy and grief can transform places and people . . . a stunning story of one small town, and all of its profound complexities and opaque mysteries. ( New York Times Book Review)

The Maid's Version is stunning. Daniel Woodrell writes flowing, cataclysmic prose with the irresistible aura of fate about it. ( Sam Shepard)

Under the grisly, seductive, colloquial tone is a very unusual thing - a communitarian novel: a novel concerned with how we live - and sometimes die - together, how we share experiences through the rituals of speaking and writing, because that is the fundamental spirit and purpose of language. ( Sarah Hall, Guardian)

Woodrell's majestic gifts create an unforgettable impression of one woman's life played out against a horrific crime that was never solved but remained to haunt all involved. ( Irish Times)

Blends the folkloric with Southern gothic, historical recapitulation with fictional investigative journalism, all suffused in his matchless tenderness of feeling ( Independent)

Woodrell's unique prose - laconic and yet possessed of an offbeat lyricism all its own - is well suited to a story reminiscent of a folk tale passed down through the generations. ( The Sunday Times)

Woodrell's distinctive qualities are his very puckish humour and the way he drapes extravagantly writerly prose on the bones of a ferociously exciting whodunit ( Literary Review)

Set in a small town festering with anger and ancient slights, it is an eerie, wondrous elegy. Daniel Woodrell understands the essential menace residing deep within human nature and although only 164 pages this is indeed a huge book ( Irish Times)
