Crapalachia front cover by Scott McClanahanCrapalachia 
"McClanahan's prose is miasmic, dizzying, repetitive. A rushing river of words that reflects the chaos and humanity of the place from which he hails. [McClanahan] aims to lasso the moon... He is not a writer of half-measures. The man has purpose. This is his symphony, every note designed to resonate, to linger."
New York Times Book Review

The Incantations of Daniel Johnston front cover by  a graphic novel by Ricardo Cavolo and Scott McClanahanThe Incantations of Daniel Johnston
"[The Incantations of Daniel Johnston] captures Johnston's visions—both artistic and hallucinatory—in an intensely colorful cartoonish style and vivid recurring images: frogs, cascades of pills, volcanoes, eyeballs of many varieties."
John Williams, New York Times Book Review
