“Deeply intoxicating, Lee Smith’s Oral History solidifies her position as an undeniable lion of Southern Literature. The novel recounts the multi-generational story of the Cantrell family, inhabitants of the wilds of southwestern Virginia over the course of the 19th and 20th centuries. Haunting, mysterious, ancestral, and isolated, Hoot Owl Holler feels frozen in time, as if under a spell. Smith’s heady, dialectic narration jumps between characters and decades, but weaves an authentic and bewitching tale of accumulating tragedies.”
