“Bold, daring, graceful, and engrossing.”
—Bobbie Ann Mason
“This book will knock your socks off….A first novel that sings with talent.”
In his phenomenal debut novel—a mesmerizing literary thriller about the bond between two brothers and the evil they face in a small North Carolina town—author Wiley Cash displays a remarkable talent for lyrical, powerfully emotional storytelling. A Land More Kind than Home is a modern masterwork of Southern fiction, reminiscent of the writings of John Hart (Down River), Tom Franklin (Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter), Ron Rash (Serena), and Pete Dexter (Paris Trout)—one that is likely to be held in the same enduring esteem as such American classics as To Kill a Mockingbird, Of Mice and Men, and A Separate Peace. A brilliant evocation of a place, a heart-rending family story, a gripping and suspenseful mystery—with A Land More Kind than Home, a major American novelist enthusiastically announces his arrival.

Decided to read this book after reading an interview with the author
Wiley Cash, in Vanity Fair. I was intrigued. A great read with a lot of soul. You can't help but want to see what happens to the character Jess.
I finished the book over two nights because I wanted to know what happened to poor little Jess. Was pulling for Ben the whole time and hoping for a better outcome. See? The characters were real for me right away. I am impressed by the writing of Wiley Cash and pleased to have had the book recommended to me.
A wonderful first or tenth novel
I have read only half of this book and already believe that the author is truly gifted. It was difficult to take just a few moments from Jess to write this review. Whether you do or do not have any interest in the topic of this book, I believe you will be entranced by the writing. And now I will return to nine-year-old Jess to see if there is any resolution to his tragedy.
