David Rhodes was an American novelist who published six acclaimed novels. His career began quickly after graduating from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. He published three novels in the 1970s, all of which met critical acclaim. But then, his life was interrupted by a motorcycle accident that left him paralyzed from the chest downward. It took him decades to recover. Eventually, he published his next novel, Driftless–arguably his best–in 2008. Then Jewelweed was published a few years later, in 2013. It is a sequel to Driftless and an excellent work in its own right. It follows several characters from the Driftless Region as they push the bounds of their connections with each other. In Rhodes’ emblematic style, the richness of characters and the range of experiences in a small town make for an engaging and thoughtful read. It remains a favorite among readers of literary fiction from the heartland.
