Vol. 2, Issue 16

For THE LOST COUNTRY is one of those rare books that is both deeply literary and hugely entertaining. Featuring an ever-expanding cast of characters and the gorgeous landscape and intense poverty of the land along the Tennessee River in 1955, this novel offers stunning line by line writing, a terrific sense of event, and an accumulation of conflict that both finds its way to an essential violence and dissolves into a satisfying existentialism. – Fred Leebron on William Gay’s THE LOST COUNTRY
