About This Item
Below are the works published during his lifetime and after. While we provide links to Amazon, we prefer you support your local booksellers. In a literary voice that is both original and powerfully unsettling, William Gay tells the story of Nathan Winer, a young and headstrong Tennessee carpenter who lost his father years ago to a human evil that is greater and closer at hand than any the boy can imagine - until he learns of it first-hand.
Gay's remarkable debut novel, The Long Home , is also the story of Amber Rose, a beautiful young woman forced to live beneath that evil who recognizes even as a child that Nathan is her first and last chance at escape. And it is the story of William Tell Oliver, a solitary old man who watches the growing evil from the dark woods and adds to his own weathered guilt by failing to do anything about it.
Set in rural Tennessee in the s, The Long Home will bring to mind once again the greatest Southern novelists and will haunt the reader with its sense of solitude , longing, and the deliverance that is always just out of reach. The Long Home was adapted in to a film directed by James Franco.
Although principle photography began in , the film has not been released. Only Fleming, E. In the great Southern tradition of Faulkner, Styron, and Cormac McCarthy, William Gay wields a prose as evocative and lush as the haunted and humid world it depicts.
RECOMMENDATIONS FROM MY RECENT READING
Provinces of Night is a tale redolent of violence and redemption—a whiskey-scented, knife-scarred novel whose indelible finale is not an ending nearly so much as it is an apotheosis. Among the colorful people readers meet are: old man Meecham, who escapes from his nursing home only to find his son has rented their homestead to "white trash"; Quincy Nell Qualls, who not only falls in love with the town lothario but, pregnant, faces an inescapable end when he abandons her; Finis and Doneita Beasley, whose forty-year marriage is broken up by a dead dog; and Bobby Pettijohn -- awakened in the night by a search party after a body is discovered in his back woods.
William Gay expertly sets these conflicted characters against lush backcountry scenery and defies our moral logic as we grow to love them for the weight of their human errors. It stars Hal Holbrook and is directed by Scott Teems. Two short stories published by Wild Dog Press.
