"Joe Wilkins has a big, true, highway-running American voice. When you see a new book of his, you should celebrate. Just buy it, put down the window, and let the music blow back your hair. It's nothing but alive." – Luis Alberto Urrea
Big news here in the last few weeks: Counterpoint Press recently bought my memoir-in-fragments The Mountain, the Fathers for publication in spring of 2012. I’m delighted to be working with the folks at Counterpoint and to be joining a catalog that features writers such as Wendell Berry, Debra Marquart, Larry Woiwode, John Daniel, Gary Snyder, and many more.
