Editorial Reviews

hardscrabbleroad.deedspublishing.com - Terry Kay
“If Hardscrabble Road fails to find readership, it will be one of the literary tragedies of 2012. This profoundly told and splendidly written story of Bud MacLeod in his growing up days of the Depression in South Georgia, is one of the most engaging novels I’ve read in years."

—Terry Kay, author of "To Dance with the White Dog" and "The Book of Marie"

Meet the Author

George Weinstein is a writer and the Managing Director of the Academy for Academic Leadership, a consulting and educational services company. His work has been published locally in the Atlanta press and in regional and national anthologies, including A Cup of Comfort for Writers. His first novel, the children’s motivational adventure Jake and the Tiger Flight, was written for the nonprofit Tiger Flight Foundation, which is dedicated to the mission of leading the young to become the “Pilot in Command” of their lives. He wishes that there had been such an organization in Laurel, Maryland, where he misspent his youth.

George is the former President of the Atlanta Writers Club (AWC) and former everything-else there too. Having run out of term-limited positions for him, in 2012 the AWC Board bestowed on George the lifetime title of Officer Emeritus, which means he can never leave. Not that he would, but it’s nice to be wanted. The AWC was established in 1914. George was established only a few years later; he has a self-portrait in his attic that looks like hell.

    Moving Southern Coming of Age Novel

    With Hardscrabble Road, George Weinstein has painted a moving coming of age novel spanning the years from the Great Depression to after World War II. The story of a south Georgia boy's rough road to adulthood and selfhood has breadth and depth, drama, and stunning but inevitable twists and surprises. Beautiful prose marks this literary work, but the author's greatest gifts are the characters who'll live with you long after you finish the book.
