About the Author:

David Payne is the author of Back to Wando Passo, Gravesend Light, Early from the Dance, and Confessions of a Taoist on Wall Street.  His memoir, Barefoot to Avalon, will be published by Grove Atlantic Press in August 2015.

Review:

I begin with what may seem a bold observation: David Payne is the most gifted American novelist of his generation. Not to put to fine a point on it, "Ruin Creek" is the best new novel I've read this year. As in "Early from the Dance," he sets his literary table on the Carolina Outer Banks, a literary territory as palpable in these pages as Tobacco Road in Erskine Caldwell's works or the Salinas Valley in John Steinbeck's -- Dallas Morning News

David Payne may not be the most publicized American novelist homing in on 40, but he is certainly the most gifted.  "Ruin Creek" is full of life, full of wisdom, full of words that singe, sing and somehow console... The strength of "Ruin Creek" is in the interplay of voices, the people, the rootedness in time and place that alone can support a flowering into the universal.  There is a shimmer of nostalgia over the whole novel, and the glare of human cruelty cuts right through it, but neither cancels the other out: this is a rare achievement. 
--Boston Globe

In his fine new novel, "Ruin Creek," [David Payne] writes of a people and a place from deep in his heart. Mr. Payne knows the hopes, fears and habits of his characters, and weaves a powerful, lyrical story for them that is a joy to read.
--The New York Times Book Review

[Payne] understands that place most families inhabit--somewhere between love and necessity, between truth and myth, between self and the expectations, the dreams and, ultimately, the separateness of others.  "Ruin Creek" has an elegiac beauty.  It celebrates the power of family love, even as it chronicles its dying... Writing this fine evokes a past time, but also a state of boyhood that is timeless.
--Washington Post Book World

This is an extraordinary work, richly textured and painfully precise in its rendering of emotion. Stories this brilliant are told only by the masters of fiction, a short list to which the name of David Payne now belongs.
--The Providence Journal
