This searing political narrative, by a major voice in this year’s Presidential Election, will be published in Fall 2017. We can’t wait!

First, a shout-out from Library Journal (in which they refer to Taylor’s “gripping, gorgeously written debut, Fallen Land”). Next, a fantastic blurb from one of our favorite writers: David Joy, author of The Weight Of This World

“With language as rich as floodplain soil, THE RIVER OF KINGS is a stunning Southern epic of tremendous heart and scope. Taylor Brown takes risks few other writers would chance and somehow manages to traverse those waters with an astounding grace and beauty.”
