    Wow Lee Maynard has again blown me away with this book of related short stories that carry the reader through a life before unimagined I laughed I smiled I felt my throat tighten and my eyes puddle Maynard paints his childhood in sepia tones with unexpected splashes of breathtaking color I love these characters Yet some of them I despise But all of them feel real to me and I think I once knew them Writing can’t get much better than what Maynard has put on these pages Every sentence is tight weighted with meaning and nothing herein is wasted Lee Maynard is the Appalachian Hemingway Highly recommended This is a novel I will read again and again
