âThis book will knock your socks offâ¦.A first novel that sings with talent.â
In his phenomenal debut novelâa mesmerizing literary thriller about the bond between two brothers and the evil they face in a small North Carolina townâauthor 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)âone 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 mysteryâwith A Land More Kind than Home, a major American novelist enthusiastically announces his arrival.
About: When nine-year-old Jess witnesses his autistic brother being smothered during a healing service, Sheriff Barefield turns to the church matriarch, whose predictions of a violent reckoning in the wake of the death are as viable as they are unavoidable.
