Synopses & Reviews
Jacob and Noah Ingledew trudge 600 miles from their native Tennessee to found Stay More, a small town nestled in a narrow valley that winds among the Arkansas Ozarks and into the reader's imagination. The Ingledew saga which follows six generations of 'Stay Morons' through 140 years of abundant living and prodigal loving is the heart of Harington's jubilant, picaresque novel. Praised as one of the year's ten best novels by the American Library Association when first published, this tale continues to captivate readers with its winning fusion of lyricism and comedy.
"Harington has succeeded in creating one of the finest novels in recent years. It is myth; it is tall tale; it is bawdy story; it is Americana; it is literature." Library Journal
"You don't have to be from Arkansas to to appreciate this robust and rollicking novel...folklore and history mix generously throughout...a rich and rewarding novel." Columbus Dispatch
It is not surprising that a cult following has grown up around Donald Harington's saga of Stay More, Arkansas, and its Stay Morons.
