For years, author William Kent Krueger was striving to write the next Great American Novel, to be the next Earnest Hemmingway. After many years though, he changed his dream and found his own niche.


“It was stupid on so many levels,” he said of his quest for trying to be the next Hemmingway. “But that’s what I tried to do for a very long time. Much too long.”

How much is too long? About 20 years.
