About the Author

John Pritchard grew up in the Mississippi Delta, a place of dark and elemental myth that inspired him to write. He currently lives in Memphis, where he has taught college-level English—often in knickers—for most of the last thirty-two years. Barnes and Noble named his debut novel Junior Ray one of their Top Ten Sensational Debut Novels for 2005.

I had the honor of learning from this author in my second semester of college as well as the honor of reading both Junior Ray and Yazoo Blues. Mr. Pritchard's knowledge of the Mississippi Delta is astounding and it shows in his writing. I could not put down either book! He is every bit as witty in person as he is in his writing =) and I would love to see more of his works on store book shelves! By the way do try the recipes XD

Never have I in the hundreds of books I have read laughed out loud so much when reading Junior Ray. The author's honest, provocative writing is so crystal clear and so hilarious you can't help but fall in love with this book.

Confederacy of Dunces meets its little brother in a hillarious character study that defies expectation at every turn of the page. I laughed, screamed, and chuckled all the way through this very literate and actually complex depiction of rural life in a Faulkneresque south.

Not since reading Toole's 'A Confederacy of Dunces' have I disturbed my wife so while I was reading a book. Outrageous to imagine and courageous to commit to print. John Pritchard has a fresh and honest voice. He refuses to censor a single thought. This book begs for a public reading ala Symphony Space.
