Charles Dodd White: A Year Without Months

Charles Dodd White will visit City Lights Bookstore on Saturday, May 14th, at 3 p.m.  He will present his new book, A Year Without Months.  This essay collection explores the boundaries of family, loss, masculinity, and place. Contemplating the suicides of his father, uncle, and son, White meditates on what it means to go on when seemingly everything worth living for is lost. What he discovers is an intimate connection to the natural world, a renewed impulse to understand his troubled family history, and a devotion to following the clues that point to the possibility of a whole life.  

"A Year without Months achieves a lyricism and poignancy reminiscent of Norman Maclean's great family story A River Runs Through It, but Charles Dodd White's voice and story are his own. Many books linger forever in our minds. Only a few also linger forever in our hearts, and this is one of them." Ron Rash, author of In the Valley

Charles Dodd White is the recipient of the Chaffin Award and the Appalachian Book of the Year Award for his fiction. He teaches English at Pellissippi State Community College in Knoxville, Tennessee.
