About the Author

Anna Jean (A.J.) Mayhew's first novel, The Dry Grass of August, won the Sir Walter Raleigh Award for Fiction, and was a finalist for the Book Award from the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance. She has been writer-in-residence at Moulin Γ  Nef Studio Center in Auvillar, France, and was a member of the first Board of Trustees of the North Carolina Writers' Network. A native of Charlotte, NC, A.J. has never lived outside the state, although she often travels to Europe with her Swiss-born husband. Her work reflects her vivid memories of growing up in the segregated South. A.J.--a mother and grandmother--now lives in a small town in the North Carolina Piedmont with her husband and their French-speaking cat.

Reviews

Advance praise for Tomorrow's Bread

"Sings to life the necessities of community, resting places and home. A tale profoundly relevant for our time."
--Elaine Neil Orr, author of Swimming Between Worlds

"Mayhew leads readers down the neighborhood streets and into its businesses and the lives of its residents and doesn't shy away from showing the neighborhood as it really was, a mixture of good and bad, but always home. Readers drawn to the well-defined characters of Stephanie Powell Watts and Thomas Mullen will find Brooklyn tugging at their hearts."
--Booklist on Tomorrow's Bread

Outstanding praise for The Dry Grass of August

"Mayhew keeps the story taut, thoughtful and complex, elevating it from the throng of coming-of-age books."
--Publishers Weekly

"Beautifully written, with complex characters, an urgent plot, and an ending so shocking and real it had me in tears."
--Eleanor Brown, New York Times bestselling author

"A must-read for fans of The Help."
--Woman's World

"Written with unusual charm, wonderful dialogue, and a deeply felt sense of time and place, The Dry Grass of August is a book for adults and young people both--a beautifully written literary novel that is a real page-turner, I have to add. Fast, suspenseful, and meaningful. I read this book straight through."
--Lee Smith, author of Fair and Tender Ladies

"Because the novel is totally true to Jubie's point of view, it generates gripping drama as we watch her reach beyond authority to question law and order."
--Booklist

"Jubie is a compelling heroine in the mold of Lily Owens in The Secret Life of Bees."
--VOYA

"A masterful work of blending time and place."
--The Charlotte Observer
