Description
(Nominated for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize) Mary Doria Russell's wildly popular novel gives us John Henry "Doc" Holliday in three dimensions—a man born to the life of a Southern gentleman, hoping to ease his tuberculosis in the Arizona sun. Holliday has taken up gambling professionally with his partner Mária Katarina Harony, an educated Hungarian prostitute, when he becomes friends with Wyatt Earp, years before he will stand beside him at the O.K. Corral.

"Intense, individual characters, so fully realized that readers can almost physically touch them, fill the novel's pages.... Doc's restrained but magnificent struggle to rise above the indignities of his disease ... is one of the delights of this surprisingly luminous and elegant novel."—Oregonian

"Russell's women are a match for any of the men in Dodge, and their presence at the center of Doc gives the novel an unforced verisimilitude."—Plain Dealer (Cleveland)

"Grabs us from the opening sentence.... Russell makes the narrative hum and the characters come alive."—Chicago Tribune
