Award-winning author Mark Richard delivers a fascinating and unique memoir. Born in the South with deformed hips, Richard was tagged a “special” child. Nothing was expected of him. But as a young man, he decided to strike out and experience as much of our strange world as he possibly could.
“No one writes like him. His prose style is both hammerblow and shrapnel. He has written the book of his life.” (Pat Conroy)
“Deploying the second person in a memoir, as Mark Richard does in the entrancing House of Prayer No. 2: A Writer’s Journey Home, is like dropping an atomic bomb. Richard’s prose is gorgeous - and hits with a force that sometimes stuns.... His propulsive prose makes House of Prayer No. 2 a surprising page turner.... Where other memoirists - evangelical and/or literary - just bluff and brag, he makes art.” (The Christian Science Monitor)

Author-Read Not Always Best Choice
- Kelli "Listen on dog walks, commutes and around the house. Welcome virtually any genre but southern fiction holds a special place in my heart."
