HEAD O' W-HOLLOW by Jesse Stuart


Email this review


The Man With A Bull Tongue Plow showed a deep feeling for the people and background from which its author sprung. Now comes this collection of sketches and short stories which proves that his in-seeing is more than a personal appreciation and interpretation. He has given us through his characterizations and bits of human drama a series of new facets on the country folk of his native Kentucky. Keen ear and ability to convey what he hears produces a sense of authenticity both in content and language. And the true poet is there in his bits of shared beauty and his native rhythms in prose. Not a book for a wide sale -- but one that should certainly deepen interest in this native son.
