Information about the author.
From award-winner Jack Cady, a new novel that is part murder-mystery, part classical tragedy, part spiritual journey. Set among the Cherokee of North Carolina in the 1950s, Inagehi is the story of a young woman who inherits a mountain and the mystery of her father’s death. With themes as ancient as the existence of God and as modern as post-traumatic stress disorder, Inagehi answers that voice inside us all that asks how “it” all fits together. A work of uncommon power from a master craftsman.
Ghosts of Yesterday is a stunning new collection by multiple-award-winning author Jack Cady. Cady captures the sights and emotions of America, from the Pacific Northwest (“Jeremiah”), to the streets of San Francisco (“The Lady With the Blind Dog”), to the Midwest-heartland (“Halloween 1942”), along the roads and highways in between (“The Ghost of Dive Bomber Hill”), and back into the history of the American Southeast (“The Time That Time Forgot”).
The stories that make up Ghosts of Yesterday are detailed and realistic portraits of the world that, despite (and perhaps because) of their authenticity, manage to convey a sense of wonder and fantastic, where anything is possible.
The characters and places that Cady brings to life demonstrate clearly why he is one of the most versatile and respected writers today… His stories will move you, and change the way you look at the world.
