Spotlight on A Land More Kind Than Home

I’m currently reading Wiley Cash’s debut novel A Land More Kind Than Home.  If you’ve read this story or are currently reading it, then you know how taut and powerful it really is.  I can’t believe this is Cash’s first book!  It does not feel like a first novel; it reads like it was written by a pro.  Cash is a master at giving his characters an authenticity.  He fills their language with “reckons,” “ain’ts,” and “fixin’ tos” with ease.  I am hooked!
