"[A] startling debut collection ... darker than anything delivered since the work of James Dickey".

-- San Francisco Chronicle
"I like Tom Franklin's stories the same way I like Lucinda Williams' music, and for the same reason: they're not updating an old song. They're set in the south, sure. But they're a new song for the south. They possess an inherent sweetness even when they're rough 'n tough. And when they're funny, it's not at the world's expense. They're poignant, and I suppose their poignance comes from longing; yet not for some mossy past--because they are contemporary stories--but for the present, as it spirits away from in front of us just at the moment we notice it's arrived. These stories surprised me. They give valuable and unexpected depth to what I thought fiction could do."-- Richard Ford"Franklin writes as if his hands and mind are on fire. "Poachers plumbs raw and startling places. His stories are burning, waiting for you."-- Rick Bass"[A] startling debut collection...darker than anything delivered since the work of James Dickey."-- "San Francisco Chronicle
