Castle Freeman

Castle Freeman, Jr., is an award winning author best known for his novels Go With Me and All That I Have. Go With Me tells the story of Lillian taking a stand to defend herself against a local villain, while All That I Have follows Sheriff Lucian Wing as he faces the challenges threatening his small Vermont town. Freeman's newest novel is Devil in the Valley. Freeman's work depicts life in rural Vermont, as he writes on his website:

"Practically all the writing I have done (including six novels, about fifty short stories, and rather more than a hundred essays and other nonfiction) has been in one way or another about rural northern New England, and in particular the State of Vermont and the lives of its inhabitants, a source of unique and undiminishing interest—at least to me."

George is a big fan. When asked for a recommendation he wrote this ode:

Who writes dialogue sharper than Elmore Leonard? He does.

Who can fit more plot and incident into fewer than 200 pages than other writers can in 500? He can. [He's the Katharine Hepburn of novelists: everything there is cherce.]

Whose novels really demand to be read out loud? Again, him.
Whom do I dearly wish would write more? Oh, that would surely be he.
Castle Freeman: he's pretty good.

Castle comes to Bear Pond Books on Tuesday, October 20th at 7:00 pm for a conversation with fellow author Archer Mayor about representing Vermont to a national audience through their writing.
