PRAISE FOR EDIE & THE LOW-HUNG HANDS

In turns naturalistic and fantastic, Brian Allen Carr has crafted a truly original tale. This Texas landscape is a mix of country and blues. Larry McMurtry sings Robert Johnson. And then there’s the sword.

– Percival Everett, author of Assumption and I Am Not Sidney Poitier

This book is beautiful. You’re going to hell if you don’t buy it. I mean that. Carr is a man with magic inside his heat. Read this book and meet a man who will love you forever. Live. Live. Read Carr. You will be alive. FINALLY.

Scott McClanahan, author of  Crapalachia and Hill William 

In Edie & the Low-Hung Hands, Carr’s alternate world is reminiscent of Denis Johnson’s Fiskadoro – dreamlike, haunting in its dystopian aura, and fully imagined. The humanity of his characters is never lost, despite the violence and strangeness of their existence.

Paula Bomer, author of Nine Months and Baby and Other Stories

I would like to personally refute any claim that the author of this book is a gentleman.

Amelia Gray, author of Threats and Museum of the Weird

Brian Carr’s Edie & the Low-Hung Hands is funny, odd, poetic, and beautifully written. Read it, and ride toward Victory.

Nick Antosca, author of Fires, Midnight Picnic and The Obese
