Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award for 2017

"Wieland’s steady prose captures life’s telling, unsettling details, with a beauty that makes it all not just bearable but also transcendent."—New Mexico Magazine

"This is a novel about what it means to be an artist—particularly a young woman artist coming alive in the world. Smart and painterly, this is definitely a book to get absorbed in for a week in the coastal sun."—Brian Lampkin, co-owner of Scuppernong Books

"In the beautifully entangled Land of Enchantment, events unfold on the surface but the novel’s nutrients lie below, in the powerful pulse of art that runs through, and in the connections and disconnections between the characters. Wieland’s novel is one no serious artist should be without."—Raleigh News and Observer

"Wieland tells the intricately woven story of three women whose lives intersect over time in ways only gradually revealed. . . .Wieland engages the reader in the emotional lives of each of these unique women, weaving their stories together during and after 9/11 to create a compelling story of the undeniable power of the muse."—Booklist

"Wieland is a vital voice in contemporary American fiction. Her prose is crisp, her voices are true, and her acuity is remarkable."—Colum McCann, author of the National Book Award–winning Let the Great World Spin

"Land of Enchantment is a beautifully written, dizzyingly knowledgeable examination of the intersection between art and life. It is the best novel I’ve read in the past year."—Charles Frazier, winner of the National Book Award for Cold Mountain
