Reviews
"Everything I wrote fell flat and lifeless on the page until I finally began to set my fiction in southern Ohio. As I kept writing about it, I began to see the place in a new light, which is, I think, one of the chief things that art is supposed to do."--From the foreword by Donald Ray Pollock, author of Knockemstiff and The Devil All the Time
"I read many compilations by and about Appalachians, but seldom have I read a collection so rooted in place as Every River on Earth. Edited skillfully by Neil Carpathios...this intriguing collection is divided into four parts that speak to the Appalachian experience as defined by southern Ohio."--Roberta Schultz, WVXU Cincinnati
"Throughout [Carpathios'] poems and stories almost as much attention is paid to our land as to plot andcharacter, from sycamore trees and foothills to the exploded hillsides lining our highways...They are intertwined and interdependent and, as this is writing from the Appalachian foothills, it simply could not be any other way."--Middle West Review
