Kate Moses

Author of Cakewalk suggests:
All the Living, C.E. Morgan's exquisite first novel, now out in paperback, tells the story of a young woman who follows her first love to his Kentucky tobacco farm after the death of his family. Against a backdrop of inexpressible loneliness, longing and drought, Morgan breathes life into two people at the cusp of adulthood and the landscape they inhabit in language that is lush and sensual but at the same time almost biblical in its rhythms and assurance.
