New York Times best-selling author Amy Greene lured us into a world of magic and madness with her astonishing debut novel Bloodroot. Now her highly anticipated second novel, Long Man is set to release February 25th bringing with it rave reviews.
“Exquisite . . . Greene’s prose is as mesmerizing as the story she weaves. Readers will never forget this vividly drawn landscape, the journeys of those who hold tight to this remarkable place in America even as it disappears before their eyes. Long Man is a novel about redemption and resurrection and love in all its forms. Its breathtaking suspense and images will haunt me forever.” —Jill McCorkle, author of Life After Life
“Unforgettable. Like a classical myth, Greene’s second novel, set in the summer of 1936, transforms a period of cataclysmic history into a gorgeous, tragic tale filled with heroes and heroines . . . Greene’s enormous talent animates the voices and landscape of East Tennessee so vividly, and creates such exquisite tension, that the reader is left devastated.” —Publishers Weekly
“Haunting . . . Long Man revisits blue-collar Appalachia with the same lyricism Greene
brought to her magnificent first novel, Bloodroot . . . With searing eloquence, she seems to channel the frustrations of generations of rural poor in this stark indictment of a government hell-bent on destroying a long-standing community. Her stunning insight into a proud and insular people is voiced with cold clarity and burning anger.” —Joanne Wilkinson, Booklist
The Knoxville Writers Guild is hosting a launch party for Long Man’s release, February 25th from 6:00-8:00PM. Celebrate the evening with Long Man themed foods, cocktails and conversation.
