Homegoing: A Novel
by Michael Olin-Hitt
Healings. Snake handlers. Stills. Quotes from the Bible. Family feuds. Chicken coops. Speaking in tongues. Indian medicine bags. Laying outs. Intergenerational rivalry. Forty lashes of hot wax. Old-fashioned tent revivals. Michael Olin-Hitt, in The Homegoing, has, with skillful writing and a true knowledge of home, combined the aura of the mid-twentieth-century Appalachia of southern Ohio with the puzzle of a mysterious disappearance and the solving of a family mystery. Read and enjoy.

In New Southerner
by Jeanne Bryner
The poems in Jeanne Bryners Smoke reveal her to be an angel of mercy not only in her work with patients but also in her ability to create poems that comfort and guide us as we face universal fears: sickness, personal and societal abuse, family tragedy, physical pain and emotional longing. Her poems dig deep, reaching what Emily Dickinson called the zero at the bone. - Cortney Davis, author of The Hearts Truth: Essays on the Art of Nurs

Review in New York Journal of Books
"The fiction in this collection is as comforting as it is challenging, as familiar as it is surprising, and, in all of the aspects that matter to the serious reader of literature, it is thoroughly satisfying." --Chris Holbrook, author of Upheaval
Stories by Charles Dodd White, 160 pgs.
Sinners of Sanction County is one of the best story collections to come out of the American South in recent times. Writing in a spare, poetic style that fairly crackles with energy, Charles Dodd White makes his mark as a major new talent as he masterfully explores the raw beauty and pathos of life among tough people caught in bad situations. With this book, he has nailed the coonskin to the wall.-- Donald Ray Pollock, author of Knockemstiff
