Reviews - What do customers think about Long Gone Daddy?
Not what I thought I was buying Nov 6, 2007
The product description on this site made this book sound as if it was a biogrpahy of Hank Williams. It's not. It's fiction. Very disappointed.
fine novel May 27, 2006
Hemphill's debut novel, told in a fresh voice with a southern twang, is a delight. She intertwines a difficult father/son relationship, religious arguments, a road trip with a coffin in the car,and an unlikely friendship; the result is a moving story well worth reading.
