It was a pleasure working with Silas on his new author photos. His new book is beautiful, but don’t take my word for it:

“House, evoking writers such as Rick Bass and Wendell Berry, serves up earnest, plainspoken characters nestled into lavishly drawn natural settings. He paints, too, an equally if less violently vivid portrait of Key West . . . He is that rare stylist on whose descriptions— incantations, really—one wishes to linger.” Garden & Gun

“Given all the stories we have of the South in print, this one is, in a quiet way, revolutionary.” Asheville Citizen-Times

“This beautifully crafted novel brims with a spirit of hopeful humanity as one man’s effort to make himself a better person casts ripples in the world around him. “ Charles Frazier, author of Varina

“His storytelling is rich, but also spare, with descriptive passages that engage all five senses . . . And his characters . . . are so complicated and real that it’s a shame to have to put the book down. Most of all, Southermost is a reminder that life is hard, and it is beautiful.” Booklist (starred)
