Authors
Erdrich, Louise
Why this match?
Both Erdrich and Price write compelling stories of love's ability to drive people apart as well as bring them together. Although Price's Southern settings are far removed from Erdrich's prairie, both authors feature a wide range of characters and twisting plots; families are often at the center of their stories. -- Shauna Griffin
Bragg, Rick
Why this match?
Like Price, Rick Bragg makes his readers care deeply about his subjects. In detailed, subtle and reflective memoirs and reporting, Bragg presents exquisite vignettes of individual experience and also explores difficult social issues. His clear and intimate tone, with a natural storyteller's pace, effectively uses voice to drive his work, using dialect and humor without ever being cruel or condescending. -- Katherine Johnson
Glass, Julia, 1956-
Why this match?
These authors of leisurely paced and reflective literary fiction examine dysfunctional families and what makes some stay together and others fall apart. Their stories are lyrical and stylistically complex, and they offer keen insight into the often difficult psychological landscapes of their characters and their relationships. -- Melissa Gray
Gurganus, Allan, 1947-
Why this match?
Probably no contemporary writer is more reminiscent of Reynolds Price than fellow North Carolinian Allan Gurganus. They are linked by their subtle exploration of gay and straight relationships, the ease with which they inhabit the voices of male or female narrators, and the generosity with which they view human foibles. -- Michael Shumate
Moore, Lorrie
Why this match?
These authors of literary and psychological fiction address themes of disillusionment, being lost in your own life, race relations, and the joys and pitfalls of love. Lyrical and stylistically intricate, these writers' stories are driven by characters with interesting internal landscapes, emotional complexities, and difficult relationships. -- Melissa Gray
Trevor, William, 1928-2016
Why this match?
These authors' works are reflective, haunting, and lyrical, and they have the genres "psychological fiction" and "domestic fiction"; and the subjects "small town life," "loss (psychology)," and "death."
