My Life Among the Fairies of Walnut Ridge - a Satiric Political Fable by Michael Glasscock

A satiric political fable—and a magical romance over two hundred years in the making.

Preacher Jack knows you won’t believe his story. Why should you? He’s only the alcoholic lay preacher in Walnut Ridge, Tennessee, a community of fifteen hundred living creatures (including animals) located “so far up a deep holler in the Smoky Mountains that our children is damn near born with one leg shorter than the other.” So when Preacher Jack tells you that he’s fallen in love with a tiny Celtic fairy who’s lived in Walnut Ridge for over two hundred years, just why should you believe him?

But when Preacher Jack meets the fairy Maybelle by the creek in his back yard, his life begins to turn around—and upside down—in this fast-paced story filled with fairy dances, flying trucks, small-town drug hustlers, and strange, new-blooming romance. And when Jack and Maybelle come face to face with an all-too-modern political evil, it’s up to the two of them to work to take their town—and their country—back.

From the author of Utopia, Texas and the Round Rock quartet of novels (Little Joe, The Trial of Dr. Kate) comes My Life Among the Fairies of Walnut Ridge, a fantastical, Southern-tinged detour into a world of strange magic that exists just beyond our sight—a world maybe closer to our own than we believe.
