About Clay Reston

I learned to make letters at an early age. Words soon followed, and then came sentences and paragraphs. I found that by stringing a lot of those things together I could make books. And that's how it all started.

Review by: Clive Hayward on March 28, 2013 : (no rating)
Is there a town as bad as Woolstock, where the birds poop on every car, every day, where okra is served for every meal & where the only good thing to come out of it is Marvis Jedd, "The Man in Dark Brown", local singing star who disappeared after attempting to perform a disasterous concert in his home town ?

Clay Reston, a native of Woolstock, left the town, vowing never to return, yet returns "home" to answer the burning question:

"What happened to The Man in Dark Brown"?

And in doing so provides a very well written account of his time in Woolstock, gathering information to write his book.

I was enthralled with the detail Mr. Reston added regarding the local residents, far too many to single out, & the general ambiance of the town as a whole, or should that be a hole?

"Woolstock" is well worth a read, Clay Reston is certainly a painter of " mind pictures", & I can thoroughly recommend the book as a vivid portrait of small town America.

I would like to vist Woolstock, if only to see if it's as bad as Mr. Reston says it is.

I'm sure he's right, he was born there !!
