In 2000, Oprah Winfrey selected Gap Creek for her Book Club., Now, a dozen years and more than a million copies later, we are proud to offer our first paperback edition of this enduring bestseller.
Julie and Hank Harmon’s new life in the valley, in the last years of the nineteenth century, is more complicated than the couple ever imagined. Sometimes it’s hard to tell what to fear most—the fires and floods or the flesh-and-blood grifters, drunks, and busybodies who insinuate themselves into their new life.
To survive, they must find out whether love can keep chaos and madness at bay. Their struggles with nature, with work, with the changing century, and with the disappointments and triumphs of their union make Gap Creek a timeless story of a marriage.
“His stripped-down and almost primitive sentences burn with the raw lonesome pathos of Hank Williams’ best songs.” - The New York Times Book Review
