What People are saying about this

Robert E. Bell
The ending of the novel is stunning. The final sentence is spine-chilling in its appropriateness, and I wish I had written it. So few writers understand style anymore, but Mr. Hollon does. The Pains of April is a beautiful book.
— (Robert E. Bell, author of The Butterfly Tree)
Judith Richards
Frank Turner Hollon's writing is fluent in the elements of literature that I love-poetic truths and eccentricities wrapped in good storytelling.
— (Judith Richards, author of Too Blue to Fly)
Tom Corcoran
Without rough-edge-rounding, and with a coupling of humor and truth, The Pains of April is a love letter to life, its desperate challenges, including the finale we rarely control. Plus, there's hope here that, just maybe, we'll be alert and clever when the outside machinery starts to rust.
— (Tom Corcoran, author of Gumbo Limbo)
Michael Knight
With abundant honesty and humor, Frank Turner Hollon tells the story of one man's life as remembered in his last days. It sounds simple, but if there's a better reason to write a book or a better reason to read one, I can't think of it.
— (Michael Knight, author of The Divining Rod)
