Charles McNair Reading & Signing

25 Oct 2013

Friday, October 25 at 7pm
Ron Rash calls Pickett’s Charge, Charles McNair’s new novel, “a rousing depiction of William Faulkner’s belief that the past is not dead, it’s not even past.” The story of a 114-year-old Civil War veteran, Threadgill Pickett, mired in old beliefs that are challenged when he undertakes an improbable journey, Pickett’s Charge has earned comparisons to John Kennedy Toole and Flannery O’Connor, as well as Faulkner. McNair is the author of the novel Land O’Goshen, books editor for Paste magazine, and a book reviewer for WMLB 1690 AM in Atlanta.
