FARTHER ALONG by Donald Harington
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: May 1, 2008

"'Is all of this a fairy tale? Is that why, as in a fairy tale, nobody has any names?' We may understand it better in the next Stay More novel; or, as they say hereabouts, farther along."
A folk-tale atmosphere as thickly constructed as an elaborate patchwork quilt is comfortably draped over the eccentric particulars of this 14th of the Arkansas author's Stay More chronicles. Read full book review >

WHEN ANGELS REST by Donald Harington

BUTTERFLY WEED by Donald Harington
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: May 10, 1996

"But Harington, an ingenious, wise storyteller and a sly stylist, able to catch the tang and vigor of the spoken word, makes Doc and the other inhabitants of Stay More seem as real as the mountains they inhabit—and also as mysteriously timeless."
Inspired, playful storytelling from one of our most consistently original (and impish) novelists (Ekaterina, 1993, etc.), who now returns to his Ozark version of Shangri-la—the village of Stay More, a place hard to find but infinitely harder to leave. Read full book review >
EKATERINA by Donald Harington
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: May 1, 1993

"Grand entertainment from an author who's been too little known for too long: perhaps this zany homage to Nabokov (especially Lolita) will bring deserved attention to Harington's impressive body of work."
Harington's eighth novel (The Choiring of the Trees, 1991, etc.) a literary tour de force that purports to be the story of a Russian ÇmigrÇe who writes bestselling and critically acclaimed novels and who also has a taste for preadolescent boys. Read full book review >
