Theodore Wheeler recommends
Unbend the River (2024)
Devin Murphy
"Devin Murphy's Unbend the River is an antidote for a cynical age. These stories catalog many of the modern maladies that plague flyover country--addiction, vanished jobs, dissolving families--then take us so deep into the experience that we too pray for mercy along with this cast of misfits. Murphy has a strong eye for detail and an ear attuned to the music of American tongues, and he shows incredible heart as his characters strive to keep each other close."
After the Flood (2019)
Kassandra Montag
"A story about the pursuit of redemption you will want to come back to again and again."
