"Lyon gives readers a story rich in precise, gorgeous language that glows like a sword on the forge and cuts as deep."-- Booklist (starred review). George Ella Lyon grew up in Harlan, Kentucky, and earned a PhD with a dissertation on Virginia Woolf. She has now lived in Lexington, Kentucky, most of her life. She is not only a writer, but a singer, and an activist for progressive causes.
