Author Appearance: Bill Cheng at the Decatur Library

Cheng, began writing SOUTHERN CROSS THE DOG in 2008, while earning his MFA at Hunter College. He drew his inspiration for this story of a group of black, childhood friends set in part against the backdrop of the 1927 Great Flood in Mississippi from the great tradition of country/delta blues music. This debut novel has been praised by Pulitzer Prize winner Edward P. Jones, who calls Cheng’s prose, “lush and so very often poetic”; and National Book Award winner Colum McCann calls it, “An incredibly daring and powerful debut.” For collectors and fans of debut Fiction, this is one book not to be missed!
