JOE HALSTEAD presents WEST VIRGINIA
Joe Halstead hails from West Virginia, whose state motto is Montani semper liberi (Mountaineers are always free). Halstead’s debut novel, West Virginia, puts that motto to the test! A family suicide brings Jamie Paddock back to the place from which he’d escape years earlier. The novel offers a portrait of the people of Appalachia and life in a difficult, beautiful, and often misunderstood place.
