Publisher's Summary

Before his untimely death in 2004, Larry Brown was hailed as one of the world's greatest living writers. With A Miracle of Catfish, the unfinished but largely complete novel Brown left behind, listeners can once again savor his eloquent and unique style. This tale of fatherhood, alienation, and loneliness introduces readers to another set of Brown's irresistibly flawed characters.


What the Critics Say

"A Miracle of Catfish is vintage Brown. It's driven by terse sentences, haunting images and a sense of place you can almost smell and taste . . . [and] filled with memorable characters....Brown was a writer who was never writerly. He was never self-consciously literary, yet created a literature that will last." (USA Today)
"The truth of the matter is that Brown is one of the best writers we have, able in a sentence or two to cut to the heart of things." (Washington Post Book World)
