Canty can see deeply into a coal mining, working class town and his writing reflects this. Despite the insight I found it rather depressing to read. Reading "Deep Down Dark" spoiled it for me. I ended up skimming the last part.

Deep, lyrical, and as beautifully stark as the Montana landscape he writes about, Canty's novel about a mining disaster (based on a real event in the 1970s) and the three lives it affects in a small, rural town is enthralling.
