Item description for Lockjaw: Collected Appalachian Stories by Holly Farris...
"Lockjaw sings with all the power of Appalachian storytelling-inventive language, unforgettable voices, narratives that take surprise hairpin turns-without ever romanticizing the region or leaning on stereotypes. Refreshing and passionate, these are stories of unexpected gestures, some brutal, some full of grace, and almost all acts of secret love." -Ann Pancake, author of Given Ground ***** "Holly Farris's prose ranges from elegant to gutsy, gentle to edgy, spare to lush. Her settings are evocative, and we come to care deeply about her characters. Each of these stories is like an entrancingly lyrical song, the kind you find yourself singing long after the music has stopped playing." - Janice Eidus, author of The War Of The Rosens
