Fred Chappell recommends
The Miss America Family (2002)
Julianna Baggott
"With her first two novels, Julianna Baggott has achieved a premier place among American writers."
Sweet Dream Baby (2002)
Sterling Watson
"Sterling Watson's Sweet Dream Baby brings us the words and music, thetastes and smells of that special time -- as well as its heartache and secret shame. I was utterly absorbed in these fierce pages."
The Year the Music Changed (2005)
Diane Thomas
"A must-read, fresh, surprising, full-hearted, joyful and sad.... If novels could sport bumper stickers, this one would read 'Love Me Tender'-and everyone would."
A Land More Kind Than Home (2012)
Wiley Cash
"I try to state the truth and dislike flinging superlatives about with mad abandon, but I have been so deeply impressed by this novel that only superlatives can convey the tenor of my thought: this is one of the most powerful novels I have ever read."
