5 Stars - MUST BUY!

My sincere thanks to Frank Anthony Books for a terrific review of Never Turn Your Back on the Tide!

“Kergan Edwards-Stout fictional memoir is an ingenious and innovative work of art… There are moments in the novel that will make you laugh out loud and moments where you are left in a puddle of your own tears. The word “memoir” may scare off some readers, but it is honestly one of the most exciting spins on an individual’s life that I’ve ever read… Frank Anthony Books gives this novel a 5 out of 5 stars - MUST BUY!”  Frank Anthony Books

“...flaky, crisp, layered, and multi-textured. Which was me. Sweet and sour. Soft and crisp. I discovered that these varied elements, that for so long had seemed at odds, were actually complementary.”
Kergan Edwards-Stout, Songs for the New Depression

“...I believe that God requires nothing of us. There is no entrance fee or requirement for participation. He is there already, inside each of us, if only we'd stop and listen.”
Kergan Edwards-Stout, Songs for the New Depression

“Upon reflection, I realize that your image of me right now might be a bit skewed. Actually, kind of fucked. I am neither a nihilist, inordinately depressed, nor jaded. Though I can be and have been all of the above, and fully expect to be again.”
Kergan Edwards-Stout, Songs for the New Depression
