This brilliant novel delivers to us rural America’s struggle against corporate agriculture through the eyes of one woman—a wife and young mother—catapulted unwillingly to the front lines by her husband’s dying words: “Promise me, Berta, promise me you’ll keep the farm going.” Locked in a David and Goliath conflict with powers well beyond her control, a fatherless child to provide for, and their own survival dependent upon the fragile lives of thousands of baby chicks, Berta must find a path forward where her son can know and love the farm the way his father had.

About the Author:

Leslie Lytle’s short fiction and poems have appeared in a number of literary magazines and journals. She is the author of the book, Execution’s Doorstep, for which Publishers Weekly wrote, “Lytle brings the capital punishment debate into sharp focus with her account of five men wrongly convicted and sentenced to death but later freed.” Having lived in rural Tennessee for over 40 years, Leslie is deeply attached to the people and place. She is a staff writer for The Sewanee Mountain Messenger with a master’s degree from Antioch University in Ohio. Leslie also plays mandolin and harmonica in a Celtic band, playing music linked to the Appalachian tradition. Chicken Stock is her first novel. 

Review:

"Over a century ago, Upton Sinclair wrote about the horrors of the American meat-packing industry in The Jungle...this book is far gentler and more human in the story it tells. The novel explores the resilience of the America character as much as it presents arguments against the corporate exploitation of American farms and farmers. In Chicken Stock readers will find a compelling and sympathetic hero, a strong argument for sustainable, natural farming, and a Tennessee novelist worth watching." -Michael Ray Taylor, for Humanities Tennessee's publication Chapter 16

"[Chicken Stock] remains a searing testament to love and loss, as well as an intelligent indictment of big agro-business. A compelling, sensitive contribution to the agriculture debate in the U.S." -Kirkus
