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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Catfish Miracle

Larry Brown's "Miracle" (edited and published posthumously by Shannon Ravenel) is just that. Readers will find Larry's final work, though not quite finished, continues in his style of gut-punching truth, pulled from the smoke and fog by Ravenel, and delivered in a tight package.

Even unfinished

I loved reading this book the first time, and the second time, and hearing it read did not diminish the experience. If anything, listening to Larry Brown last and never finished novel revealed it's magic and message in a whole new way. I highly recommend this book.
