Critical Praise

"Gripping storytelling, indelible sense of time and place...Morgan turns the stories of prosaic lives into page-turners."

——The Raleigh News and Observer

"Simple but heartfelt -- a wonderful book...written in graceful, unadorned language."

——Chicago Tribune

"Reminiscent of James Dickey -- bearing the same naturalistic marks of clear, clean prose and often disturbing imagery...Morgan casts a stark story peopled with real, believable, and honest characters."

——The Baltimore Sun

"At their finest, his stripped-down and almost primitive sentences burn with the raw, lonesome pathos of Hank William's best songs."

——The New York Times Book Review
