Pinckney Benedict recommends
So Far Gone (1998)
"So Far Gone is like meeting a murderer in person without the false comfort of guards and riot guns and wire-reinforced security glass between you and the killer. It's that dangerous and exciting."
Aftermath Lounge (2015)
"The best apocalyptic fiction of the year comes to us in these beautifully crafted, masterfully stories. A hopeful Book of Revelation."
"Every animal in this noveldog, goose, cat, horse, or humancomes across as utterly real. Talley English magically combines the narrative drive of a novelist with the linguistic sensitivity of a poet and the wisdom of a woman who has lived her life in nature. A book for anyone who loves horses and good novels."
