Author Info
Pinckney Benedict
Pinckney Benedict has appeared on National Public Radio's "All Things Considered" and is the recipient of several prizes and awards, including the "Chicago Tribune" Nelson Algren Award and a fellowship from the Bread Loaf Writer's Conference. He has lived in West Virginia.
"[Benedict writes] with the lyrical exactitude of Henry Thoreau on a metaphysical field trip to hell"
"No ordinary thriller, 'Dogs of God' creates a sense of place that few could convey with such savage, lyrical suspense."
"This is a ferocious tale in every sense, and Pinckney Benedict skillfully manages to prevent the complex plot from running out of control."
"Superb narrative drive and full vision--delightful and exciting. Young Benedict joins Jayne Anne Philips and Breece D'J Pancake as one of the considerable literary forces of what should be a proud West Virginia."
"An invocation of dark, chthonic forces, a book which almost literally takes no prisoners. It's a page turner for sure, but also worth reading slowly. The elaborate, gorgeous writing here lives up to the best of Benedict's wonderful short stories, though it goes at a pace to outdo most thrillers."
