A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash.. If hardboiled hillbilly seems a contradiction in terms, you should try this thriller, which is more about right and wrong in a gorgeously realized, too often stereotyped setting and subculture than it is about snake-handlers. Authentic.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"The languid atmosphere seduces, and Cash’s fine first effort pulls the reader into a shadowy, tormented world where wolves prowl in the guise of sheep."

Publishers Weekly

"Good old-fashioned storytelling. . . . With murder, religion, infidelity, domestic abuse, guns, whiskey and snake handling, Land is rich in unstable relationships and beautiful tragedy."
