The Summer Boy
Henry Mitchell (Author)
DescriptionDeposited by his dysfunctional city parents for the summer with his eccentric Aunt Mary in a remote Appalachian cove, Benjamin Drum runs away, farther than he ever intended, closer home than he ever imagined. Lost between the mountains, Ben wanders into a strange new world where he is befriended and pursued by beings human and non-human, malevolent and merciful. Before he finds his way back to Mary, he finds himself.
The Summer Boy is a genre-defying work, written in a style that falls somewhere between Ron Rash and Neil Gaiman, bright and shining as a summer day, dark and deep as a coal mine.
"... a gorgeous work of magical realism that flawlessly weaves myth and metaphor into a tale ringing with the sounds of authentic Appalachian speech and Celtic heritage... a haunting tale expertly told." -Sharon Claybough.
