Read full description of the books:
So, if you haven't started at the beginning of Mr Harington's series, start now.
Each book, although they have common thread running through them of a story line, is different, with different viewpoints, different characters, perhaps a cockroach and a ghost or two.
They, like this one, are about the characters of the rural Ozarks, real people, with real stories, with real problems and interesting solutions.
I'm sure greater literary minds than mine got a lot more of the parallels of A Midsummer's Night Dream than I out of this one, but who cares.
These are wonderful folks, living wonderful lives, doing wonderful things, and, okay, a bit of mostly non graphic sex thrown in for fun.
You will instantaneously be involved in the lives of these characters.
And sadly, there are only a few more books in the series.
What will I do when I need to feel good all under when there are no more Stay More books to read?

Read information about the authorDonald Douglas Harington was an American author. All but the first of his novels either take place in or have an important connection to "Stay More," a fictional Ozark Mountains town based somewhat on Drakes Creek, Arkansas, where Harington spent summers as a child.
Harington was born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas. He lost nearly all of his hearing at age 12 due to meningitis. This did not prevent him from picking up and remembering the vocabulary and modes of expression among the Ozark denizens, nor in conducting his teaching career as an adult.
Though he intended to be a novelist from a very early age, his course of study and his teaching career were in art and art history. He taught art history in New York, New England, and South Dakota before returning to the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, his alma mater, where he taught for 22 years before his retirement on 1 May 2008.
Harington is acclaimed as one of America's greatest writers of fiction, if not one of its best known. Entertainment Weekly called him "America's greatest unknown writer." The novelist and critic Fred Chappell said of him "Donald Harington isn't an unknown writer. He's an undiscovered continent." Novelist James Sallis, writing in the Boston Globe: "Harington's books are of a piece -- the quirkiest, most original body of work in contemporary U.S. letters."
Harington died of pneumonia, after a long illness, in Springdale on 7 November 2009.
Harington's novels are available from The Toby Press in a uniform edition, with cover illustrations by Wendell Minor. Since his death, The Toby Press has made available the entire set of Harington novels as The Complete Novels of Donald Harington.
