Larry Brown is one of my favorite authors so I was delighted to win this book in a Goodreads giveaway. It’s a great collection—there were only two stories that didn’t appeal to me—all the others were standard Larry Brown perfection. Brown wrote about ordinary people and places but the overall effect is transcendent. Highly recommend this book.

This was my first reading of the written works of Larry Brown. His stories have been described as “gritty” and “real”. I would definitely agree with those descriptions. My favorite stories in this collection are “Tiny Love”, “Sleep”, & “A Roadside Resurrection.” I do have to provide trigger warnings for racial slurs, sexism, & drunk driving. Many of the stories involve bars, driving drunk with a cooler of beer on the floorboard and picking up women. These stories may not be what I am ...more

I have entered many book giveaways here on Goodreads over the years but this is the first time I won a free book. I'm thrilled that it is by one of my favorite authors, Larry Brown. It was a welcome addition to my library and quite a surprise since the author passed away a few years ago and I didn't expect any new releases by him. Thank you Goodreads!

This is an eclectic collection of short stories that begins with his first published short story. As always Larry Brown tells it like it is with a

A very interesting collection of short fiction. As always, Larry Brown depicts a gritty, honest portrayal of life in rural Mississippi. There's no gratuitous, over the top characters or circumstances. Larry gives you the people that live there. This is their life, struggles, happiness. Sometimes very funny and sometimes heartbreaking. I love that about his books. Wish there was more.

I love the edginess of Larry Brown's writing, and I can't read it without hearing Nick Cage's voice narrating the story. Cage starred in the film Joe which was based on a Larry Brown book. I also learned that Larry Brown had passed away, which is a great loss. I would say this collection short stories is not his best work, but that doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things as his other works stand on their own. RIP Larry.
