Forty years ago, Donald Harington created a little town of Stay More, hidden away in the hills of the Ozarks. He populated it with generations of families that had escaped the Appalachians in serach of more room, greener pastures, freedom from convention, sweeter air and water, or, simply, a world where time and history don't matter. In Enduring, Harington continues the themes of the Stay More series and reveals, for the first time, the mysteries of the life of Latha Bourne, the heroine and demigoddess of Lightning Bug, The Choiring of the Trees, and other Harington classics, who is set apart from her fellow Stay Morons, as Harington affectionately calls them, by her beauty, wit, mystery and intense, unfulfilled sexuality.

About the Author:

Donald Harington is a brilliant creator of fictional worlds rooted in his native Arkansas and told in a uniquely American, Southern idiom. Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award, the Porter Prize, the Heasley Prize, and in 2006 the first Oxford American Lifetime Achievement Award for Southern Literature.

Review:

[The conclusion] to one of the most ambitious fictional cycles in American literature...[Harington] writes elegantly of a time gone by, and of people whom, in real life, time would have forgotten...Elegiac and complex a feast of Southerly words that will please Harington's many admirers. --Kirkus Reviews

Donald Harington is one of the most powerful subtle and inventive novelists in America --The Washington Post

He is our Chaucer, and Enduring is Harington at his brilliant, idiosyncratic best. --Ron Rash
