John F. Blair Publishers have approved the Stillpoint Digital audiobook production Long Gone Daddies, narrated by David Kudler. A real departure from our earlier releases, David Wesley Williams’s twelve-bar blues of a novel is an exploration of love, fame, and the roots of song. Oh — and fathers and sons, as the name implies.
Publishers Weekly said, “This lyrical multi-generational musician’s tale marks veteran newspaperman Williams’s impressive first novel. . . . The historical backdrop, including a cameo by young Elvis as a busboy, adds delightful texture and rich depth to Williams’s fictional account of the early days of rock ‘n roll.” Foreword Reviews called it “a bluesy, smoke-tinged story of a man, his guitar, and the family lore that haunts and threatens to dismantle his future…At once dreamy and wild, a churning, soul-searching trip into the root of music making. Readers will find in this novel an immersive and imaginative experience.”
The book should be available for purchase in another couple of weeks, but in the mean time, here’s a taste:
