Editorial Reviews

Review

Read what the IPPY judges had to say about Requiem for a Redneck! (This book) has much more than you first imagine. Some very soulful, funny and heartfelt writing. In Schulz's world, rednecks are people too, and he writes about them with insight and compassion. --2009 IPPY gold medal award judges
Stayed up until 12:30 to finish your book the other night. That says something. So, it s a good read. My favorite scene was the wedding party. It sorta transcended storytelling and went to somewhere else. This from a visual person. Congrats. --Tom Schulz, Artist, Charlotte, SC
My wife, Susan, and I really enjoyed meeting you at Trellis, in Cartersville, a couple of weeks ago. I bought your book at that time and promised Sandy Lutz that I'd read it in front of my current pile of 30 or 40 unread books. I enjoyed it very much. You have a gentle and easy-to-read style, a very nice turn of clever phrase, and a genuine respect for your subject As a true northerner, a Canadian, in Georgia since 1991, I have had plenty of opportunities in my work, in family practice and public health, to meet and work with rednecks. I came quickly to realize that the existing stereotypes simply couldn't and didn't cut it in helping me to understand them. So I opened my mind and found what you so nicely described - people who could do things, and more to the point, in my work, who could get things done and were willing to work with me on important health issues, after a sometimes lengthy process of skepticism. Thanks for your book. I'll be recommending it to friends and urging Sandy to push it to her customers. ---Paul, Cartersville, GA
You have done it! I am enjoying your book. Wonderful characterization, great dialogue, touching scenes that resonate with my own redneck roots. Can a Georgia boy be anything but a redneck in his soul if he's honest about it? I don't think so. Congratulations, John. You done good. --Joel Fletcher, Rome, GA
John, just finished your book... you can write. You have a remarkable talent. Please have another book in your head. --Steve Moseley, Rome, GA
I had a friend pick up three copies of the books for me today. Tell John he got them at the liquor store! He is a Baptist minister and got a kick out of that. --Bernice Couey Anderson, Rome, GA --reader comments

About the Author

John Schulz spent his formative years growing up in the southeastern United States. He received a BSED in English from the University of Georgia. With the exception of a short time teaching, John has held many important positions that range from garbage truck driver to ornamental plant grower to hardware salesman in rural Alabama. He has been a landscape designer and installer for thirty years. John currently refers to himself as a landscape artist; and writer. John possesses a good ear for dialect, a good eye for local color, an ability to remember countless details of his experiences, and complex sense of humor and sensitivity. He has paid attention to southern working men and appreciates their varied and unique lifestyles. Requiem for a Redneck is a fictional novel created from a compilation of stories, experiences, and observations that John has held on to for many years. He feels that the Redneck culture presents us with a multitude of interesting stories that can only be gathered from the inside. John's observations on the Southern Redneck: Rednecks are more than a series of jokes. They are more than a lifestyle; they are a genre. The true redneck knows how to do things. He knows how to work, and he holds a sense of values from generations past. I have always admired people who have the ability to get by when faced with demanding circumstances. Hank Williams Jr. wrote a song a while back titled A Country Boy Can Survive. I agree with that. However, there's a bigger world outside of the redneck culture and when the average redneck discovers this, it's usually through some quirk of the rules. I am trying to present the redneck as a multi-level survivalist who creatively handles these situations as they are handed to him. That's what makes my story. --This text refers to the perfect edition.
