Description

"Bold, daring, graceful, and engrossing." -Bobbie Ann Mason "This book will knock your socks off….A first novel that sings with talent." -Clyde Edgerton In his phenomenal debut novel-a mesmerizing literary thriller about the bond between two brothers and the evil they face in a small North Carolina town-author Wiley Cash displays a remarkable talent for lyrical, powerfully emotional storytelling. A Land More Kind than Home is a modern masterwork of Southern fiction, reminiscent of the writings of John Hart (Down River), Tom Franklin (Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter), Ron Rash (Serena), and Pete Dexter (Paris Trout)-one that is likely to be held in the same enduring esteem as such American classics as To Kill a Mockingbird, Of Mice and Men, and A Separate Peace. A brilliant evocation of a place, a heart-rending family story, a gripping and suspenseful mystery-with A Land More Kind than Home, a major American novelist enthusiastically announces his arrival.
