"Thoughtful reading that will entertain as it enlightens, Broken Ground is quite the read, very highly recommended."
"It's a great Northwest novel, prescient in its themes and sharp in its execution."
"In John Keeble's extraordinary novel, Broken Ground, a social fable for our time, every element has its double in the illuminating realm of metaphor. . . . No other serious American novel has confronted so directly and so eerily the slithery power of corporate dominance over humble lives as well as over our changing, dehumanized landscape."
-Lynne Sharon Schwartz, Hungry Mind Review
"Broken Ground rumbles with metaphor, and the book seems to propel itself toward revelations about our individual, collective, and national spirit."
-Tim Nolan, New York Times Book Review
