beautiful prose

Clyde Edgerton writes about Wiley Cash‘s novel, A Land More Kind Than Home “This book will knock your socks off.  It’s so good to read a first novel that sings with talent. Wiley Cash has a beautifully written hit on his hands.”

From the novel:

I climbed into the cruiser and turned on the lights and the siren and drove along the top of the ridge before taking the road down toward Marshall. I knew there were hollers in places below me where it had been dark for almost an hour, but up here on the ridge the sun was struggling to be remembered and I could see red and gold still lighting up the sky in the distance on the Tennessee side of the mountain.

  1. If Clyde Edgerton said it, it must be true.

  2. Oh yes, Kathy!

    Cash is definitely an author to watch. This is his first book and I’m looking forward to more.
