The Southern Cross
These stories are the real deal, the way Larry Brown's and Raymond Carver's stories are real. They move with what can only be called a great and authentic soul. This is a special book, and the announcement of a wonderful writer and storyteller.
Rick Bass, author of The Lives of Rocks
The sixteen short stories featured in Skip Horack's prize-winning debut collection paint a richly textured vision of the American South. Set in the Gulf Coast over the course of a year torn halfway by the arrival of Hurricane Katrina, these stories, filled with humor, restraint, and verve, follow the lives of an assembly of unforgettable characters. An exonerated ex-con who may not be entirely innocent, a rabbit farmer in mourning, and an earnest young mariner trying to start a new life with his wife all are characters that populate the spirited cities and drowsy parishes in Horack's marvelous portrait of the South.
Each of these deeply felt stories is an offbeat song of the new South. From post-K New Orleans to the Panhandle, Horack rummages fearlessly through the houses and trailers and yards and bars where his characters kill time and make hay, so he can unearth what worries their hearts. His is an intrepid and startling new literary voice.
