“Dark, brooding and intense…If Cormac McCarthy
delved into the coal mines of generations past, he'd
no doubt find Jack waiting… Extremely well written,
but it's not for the faint of heart” - Amazon review
Seamus McGraw, journalist, lecturer and
author of the critically acclaimed “The End
of Country” and the soon-to-be released
“Betting the Farm on a Drought: Stories
From the Front Lines of Climate Change,”
brings his latest piece, “Jack of Spades, The
(Very) Last Will and Testament of Old Joe,”
to the Smithfields branch of the Eastern
Monroe Public Library at 2 pm August 16.
Set in the coal fields of eastern Pennsylvania
at the turn of the last century, “Jack of
Spades” is the gritty tale of one man’s
struggle to keep from being swallowed
whole by the world he lives in.
