520    ?Yocum writes like the reporter he used to be. He's 
       observant and still has his eye for detail and 
       nuance.??Richmond Times-Dispatch Jimmy Lee Hickam grew up 
       along Red Dog Road, a dead-end strip of gravel and mud 
       buried deep in the bowels of Appalachian Ohio. It is the 
       poorest road, in the poorest county, in the poorest region
       of the state. To make things worse, the name Hickam is 
       synonymous with trouble. Jimmy Lee hails from a heathen 
       mix of thieves, moonshiners, drunkards, and general anti-
       socials that for decades have clung to both the 
       hardscrabble hills and the iron bars of every jail cell in
       the region. This life, Jimmy Lee believes, is his destiny,
       someday working with his drunkard father at the sawmill, 
       or sitting next to his arsonist brother in the 
       penitentiary. There aren't many options if your last name 
       is Hickam. An inspiring coach and Jimmy Lee's ability to 
       play football are the only things motivating him to return
       for his junior year of high school, until his visionary 
       English teacher cuts him a break and preserves his 
       eligibility for the coming football season. To thank her, 
       Jimmy Lee writes a winning essay in the high school 
       writing contest. When irate parents and the baffled 
       administration claim he has cheated, his teacher is 
       inspired to take his writing talent as far as it can go, 
       showing him the path out of the hills of Appalachia. 
       Terrific characterizations, surprising revelations, gut-
       wrenching past betrayals, and an unforgettable cast of 
       characters born of the dusty, worn-out landscape of 
       southeastern Ohio make The Essay a powerful, evocative, 
       and incredibly moving novel.
