Now in Paperback: The Tilted World – Tom Franklin and Beth Ann Fennelly

This Indie favorite about the Great Flood of 1927, moonshiners, revenuers, orphans and mother love is out in time to be a winning summer read (complete with a new cover that emphasizes Dixie’s story). My original review is here but below is a reminder of how the book  was originally received:

“[A]suspenseful, emotionally moving novel about the Great Flood of 1927. . . . The authors superbly depict the bonds of maternal, romantic, and brotherly love, and their slangy dialogue and piquant metaphors enrich their setting. This is a full-bodied shot of bluesy Americana with just the right amounts of grit, heart, and woeful longing, and it goes down smooth and satisfying.”
