John Pritchard's work fits well between the singing prose of James Agee and the rustic lampoon and high humor of Erskine Caldwell. The reader is treated to a unique brand of dark funniness that closes the divide between burlesque and metaphysics, fuses the profane with the sublime, and explains the Deep South as no other writer has done before. "Sailing to Alluvium" is the third installment in John Pritchard's critically acclaimed series that follows the antics of Junior Ray and his buddy, Voyd Mudd.

John Pritchard grew up in the Mississippi Delta, a place of dark and elemental myth that inspired him to write. He currently lives in Memphis, where he has taught college-level English--often in knickers--for most of the last thirty-two years. He is the unofficial Mayor of Midtown.
