Pat Conroy recommends
East Coast Girls (2020)
Kerry Kletter
"A writer of great distinction and infinite promise."
Where It Hurts (2016)
(Gus Murphy, book 1)
Reed Farrel Coleman
"Reed Farrel Coleman's Where It Hurts tells a riveting story about a Long Island that has nothing to do with the romantic vision of F. Scott Fitzgerald in this action packed tale of an amoral world. Coleman is a born storyteller who writes with great authority and gives as much bang for the buck as the best books in the genre."
Fate Moreland's Widow (2015)
John Lane
"The literature of the southern mill village has been underdone and this magnificent novel adds greatly to it. What John Lane does better than anyone I have read is explore the interrelatedness of both the mill worker and the mill owner, trapped by the desires and abuses of unchecked power. Their symbiosis is opaque and troublesome. In the widow Novie Moreland, John has crafted a masterfully nuanced new symbol of male obsession and female resilience poised to become the Circe of the Carolina foothills."
