We’re seeing holds stack up in some libraries as attention builds for Wiley Cash’s debut novel, A Land More Kind than Home (HarperCollins/Morrow; Blackstone Audio), published on Tuesday. Holds are particularly heavy in libraries in the author’s home state of North Carolina.
Good news; you can join us for a chat with the author this coming Tuesday, April 24.
Kansas City Star (syndicated); “Wiley Cash delivers a lyrical, poignant debut that melds crime fiction with Southern gothic for an emotional story about two brothers.”
St. Augustine Record, “For an author to settle so comfortably into the skin of a character that he can bring them to life as real as any person you’ve actually known is a special talent… and Cash does it times three.”
Milwaukee Journal Sentinal; compares it favorably to Tom Franklin’s Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter, adding, “Cash writes with confidence and compassion about a part of America ‘where people can take hold of religion like it’s a drug”…Cash’s story layers all of this into a beautifully written morality tale.”
Hope to see you on Tuesday for the chat.
