Brad Watson recommends
If You Want Me to Stay (2005)
"Brilliant and funny and blow-your-heart-out sad all at once."
The Last September (2015)
Nina de Gramont
"A brilliant rendering of a love story and a murder mystery."
The Underworld (2017)
"Canty writes with uncanny insight into the unspeakable beauty of life itself."
"Caleb Johnson is as much a prophet of his place and time as was Larry Brown of north Mississippi, as Cormac McCarthy of his native Knoxville, Tennessee, Marquez of his homegrown, fictional Macondo. He is ‘Treeborne.’ This is a novel born of a deep, affectionate, and wise knowledge of a place and its people, its history, and its rich and complicated wildness. And its innate tendency to recognize and heighten the mysterious and strange in the ordinary, everyday. He manipulates and maneuvers narrative masterfully."
