"Benjamin Percy is one of the most gifted and versatile writers to appear in American publishing in years...His prose has the masculine power of Ernest Hemingway's, but also the sensibilities and compassion of Eudora Welty. His writing is like a meeting of Shakespeare and rock 'n' roll. Benjamin Percy knows how to keep it in E-major, and what a ride it is." James Lee Burke, bestselling author of Feast Day of Fools, Heaven's Prisoners, and Neon Rain. Benjamin Percy is a Pabst Endowed Writer for 2019
