Mr. Rhodes published three novels in the early seventies to great acclaim. After a motorcycle accident left him paralyzed he stopped publishing, to the dismay of reviewers and readers alike, for three decades. In 2008, his most recent work, Driftless was published and earned him very high reviews from all areas of the literary world. Alan Cheuse of the Chicago Tribune said, ""Driftless" is the best work of fiction to come out of the Midwest in many years, and it re-creates the human condition as a condition of Wisconsin life." Driftless, along with his other three novels, are all at Lane Library. Click here to see if they are currently available.
