Endorsements of Dayne Sherman and his fiction:
“Dayne Sherman writes like I wish I could if I was still young enough to change.”
–Rick Bragg, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of All Over but the Shoutin’ & Jerry Lee Lewis: His Own Story
“Dayne Sherman’s exciting fiction takes us down a dusty Southern road to a place where both honor and ties of blood are more important than breath itself, and where even the religion is violent.”
–Tim Gautreaux, author of The Missing & The Clearing
“Sherman’s promising debut chronicles a young man’s thorny return to his Louisiana hometown… Sherman brilliantly reunites a land with its own set of vicious rules with a native of that land who, as a changed man, simply wants peace. Weaving his way through a series of complex characters and a terrain fertilized with a proud but bloody history, Sherman tells a spirited and engaging tale.”
In Zion, his second novel, Dayne Sherman has proven he is one of the best writers of Southern fiction today. From his knowledge of guns to carpentry to nature Sherman misses nothing in the world of Baxter, Louisiana, a town filled with a cast of characters I’ll long remember. It’s good versus evil in an intense and riveting story where long withheld secrets tear at the very fabric of family ties. This is the story of Tom Hardin, a man with a conflicted heart whose lamentations strike the deepest veins of the heart. It’s one of those rare tales that readers will continue to ponder long after the last page is turned.
–Bev Marshall, author of Hot Fudge Sundae Blues & Right as Rain
