David Rhodes, author of "Driftless," and "The Easter House," both published by Milkweed Editions of Minneapolis, has received a Guggenheim Fellowship.
Rhodes published three novels to great acclaim in the 1970s. Writer John Gardner had said he had "one of the best eyes in recent fiction." But in 1977, Rhodes was paralyzed in a motorcycle accident, and didn't publish again for 30 years.
Milkweed Editions published "Driftless" in 2008, and re-issued "The Easter House" last year.
Rhodes will use his fellowship to complete his next novel. He and his wife live near Wonewoc, Wis.
