In this episode we talk with up-and-coming author Andy Davidson about his upcoming novel In the Valley of the Sun.
Andy Davidson holds an MFA in fiction from the University of Mississippi. His work has appeared in Drunken Boat, Carve magazine, the Santa Clara Review, and other journals. He lives in Georgia with his wife.
“In this bold, confident debut, Davidson takes the vampire myth to 1980s West Texas, perfectly capturing the feel of the era and place . . . Davidson successfully makes the lines between genre and literary fiction bleed together in a complex novel of horror, human nature, and the American South.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“In the Valley of the Sun is a flint-hard, gorgeously written nightmare.” ―Laird Barron, author of The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All
“Turns out there’s a middle space between Tender Mercies and Preacher and Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. It’s called In the Valley of the Sun. And if I didn’t know Andy Davidson had written it, I’d swear this was some long-lost William Gay. I burned through this. It’s got teeth on every page.” —Stephen Graham Jones, author of Mongrels
