“Bold, daring, graceful, and engrossing.”
—Bobbie Ann Mason
“This book will knock your socks off….A first novel that sings with talent.”
In his phenomenal debut novel—a mesmerizing literary thriller about the bond between two brothers and the evil they face in a small North Carolina town—author 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)—one 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 mystery—with A Land More Kind than Home, a major American novelist enthusiastically announces his arrival.
A Land More Kind Than Home
Wow! I hope this writer has more novels to come, because this one is great. The characters are rich and complex, the book is very well narrated.
This is a great story made better by a fabulous audio production. Multiple voices and accents give credence to the Appalachain setting and truly enhance the story. Even as I read parts of the book in an actual book, I heard the voices of these characters while reading. Add it to your list!
Really good book
This was a very well-done audiobook. Different voices for different characters really enriched their personalities. Characters were very well-developed, which really added to enjoyment and richness of overall story-line. Book itself was very well-crafted. Didn't want it to end.
