“What a testament it is to a splendid novelist’s powers to pitch-perfectly create a small-town . . . and in doing so not only illuminate the zeitgeist but some universal truths to boot. Keith Lee Morris is a writer whose books I have promised myself never to skip.”
— Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer-winning author of A Good Scent from Strange Mountain
