Matthew Neill Null to Read

link the rest of this: Null will visit the Carolinas September 11–19, thanks in part to a grant from South Arts. The novel follows a brotherhood of timber wolves as they clear-cut the virgin

Allegheny forest under the directive of a turn-of-the-century logging company. Honey from the Lion evokes the ecological devastation and human tragedy behind the Gilded Age, and sings the land and ordinary lives in all their extraordinary resilience. New York Times best-selling author Ron Rash praises the novel’s “beautiful prose, vivid characterization, and meticulous research,” and Manuel Munoz says, “the real pleasure—and certainly not the only one—is in the sentences, as complex, deliberately assured, and lethal as Flannery O’Connor’s.” If you are interested in interviewing Null, please contact Emily Smith at or call910.962.7401.
