An occasional series in which writers speak for themselves.
With three highly praised novels — Rivers, Desperation Road, and The Fighter — already under his belt, Mississippi author Michael Farris Smith is back with Blackwood, which Kirkus calls “unsettling, heartbreaking, and frequently astonishing…this Southern gothic never runs out of revelations...Such is the power of Smith's pitch-black poetic vision that the deeper you get into the book, the more entwined you are by its creeping effects.” Smith recently discussed Blackwood with WYPL.
