Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, sponsored by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that highlights upcoming titles we can hardly wait to hear.
This Wednesday, we are looking forward to Land O’Goshen, by Charles McNair. We just released McNair’s second novel, Pickett’s Charge and love the way he writes. His words translate so well from print to audio and we know that Land O’Goshen is going to be a spectacular listen.
Land O’Goshen was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
Publishers Weekly says, “If Faulkner had tried his hand at science fiction, the result might have sounded much like this energetic first novel. The unlikely futuristic setting is backwoods Alabama at a time when the country is ravaged and ruled by fundamentalist Christian soldiers. Red-haired, rambunctious Buddy, a 14-year-old orphan, narrates this story of his life while hiding out in an ancient Indian burial mound on the outskirts of the town of Goshen. Costumed as a creature he calls Sack, Buddy terrorizes the countryside as the ‘Wild Thang,’ hoping that his mythological monster will undermine the Christian tyranny.”
