Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's as if Raymond Carver were still alive and living in the Deep South. Or, imagine a world created by Jim Harrison and Cormac McCarthy and plunk it down in the woods of southern Alabama, where emotions run as raw as moonshine.

Tom Franklin's eloquent deceptively simple prose evokes a world of hunting and fishing, shotgun shacks and trailer parks, poachers, and lawmen, factory workers, poor white trash, and bucket-o-'blood boozers. His stories are laced with naked violence, hot food, and the ever bitter sweat and tears of human relationships.

About the Author

Tom Franklin is the author of Hell at the Breech and Poachers. He lives in Oxford, Mississippi, with his wife, the poet Beth Ann Fennelly, and their three children. He teaches at the University of Mississippi.
