Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Clark returns to his longtime haunt, the small eastern Kentucky town of Sourwood, in his latest story collection, steeped not just in the dialect of his beloved Appalachia but in the values at its core. The stories, centering on the young unnamed narrator and his older brother, Caleb, range from slapstick humor to poignant sketches of some of the town's quixotic inhabitants. The most touching of these revolves around Girty, a lonely woman with the mind of a child, who is knocked off a railroad trestle by a coal train. The collection wouldn't be complete without accounts of the ability of several local "witches" to cast spells, which of course leads to constant baiting and testing by the younger generation. Memorable characters (like the town constable who was "said to have a brain the size of a pea drought-grown") and a strong sense of the natural beauty surrounding Sourwood help explain why this place is obviously dear to the author's heart.

"Billy C. Clark at his best with touches of O. Henry and James Still stirred in, and that's the highest compliment I can pay for a writer of short fiction."
