Item description for How The Sun Shines On Noise by Matthew Deshe Cashion...
This novel offers an unusual and darkly comic take of a man on the skids, a wildly sardonic ride that teeters on destruction but manages to pull through in a fashion worthy of any grinning anti-hero who alternately fights himself and the surrounding ring-a-ding complacency of others.

How the Sun Shines on Noise Nov 11, 2004
How the Sun Shines on Noise is a biting, wildly funny account of what it means to hate a job. Set in South Georgia at a series of locales ranging from the small-town newspaper, to a local convenience store, to the ocean itself, Cashion's novel is peopled by white-collared Philistines risen from a trailer-trash world. It's a tense landscape, suffocating in its own crude politeness, from which those who haven't yet risen can only sit on their front porches, sipping beer, smelling the fumes from the local paper mill, and waiting to act. And with a masterful stroke, Cashion's characters do act, escaping their own impotence through any means at their disposal, often to an outlandish end.
Cashion is a bold storyteller and a skilled craftsman. He infuses existential overtones that bring to mind Walker Percy, balanced by a quickened momentum and dialogue so authentically deep-South it reaches, at times, the heights of Eudora Welty's. Moreover, his style is as paradoxical as his characters--forceful through its terseness, yet at times, lyrical and introspective. With his first novel, Cashion is truly creating a unique and long-lasting place for himself.
