Fiddler’s Ghost tops in St Lou

Fiddler/'s Ghost - by Mitch JayneFiddler’s Ghost, the most recent novel from former Dillard’s funny man Mitch Jayne, has been selected as among the Best Books of 2007 by The St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The book, released this summer by Wildstone Media, tells the tale of a young schoolteacher and his wife who settle into their new home in the Ozarks, only to find it inhabited by Hiram, a fiddle playing ghost. Critics have praised the book for Jayne’s rich embrace of the idiomatic language of the Ozarks, and his authentic representation of the culture.

Congratulations to Mitch for this recognition. You can find more details about the book on the Wildstone site.
