Special ColumbiaMagazine.com story
Adair County native Christopher Rowe has been receiving national attention for his new collection of short stories, Telling the Map. The book collects the best of the stories Rowe has published thus far in his twenty-year career as a professional writer, and includes several pieces set in Kentucky--two, in fact, begin in Adair County.
The two most important review magazines in the publishing world have given the book rave reviews, with Publishers Weekly lauding Rowe's "wild creativity, haunting imagery, and lyricism" and Kirkus Reviews calling the collected stories a "clutch of complex, persuasive visions of an alternate South."
Rowe is the son of Rita Rich Yates, late of Barnett's Creek and now living in Washington County, and of Billy Rowe, of Rowe Farms. He is the proud grandson of one well-known Adair Countian, Stanley Rich, and the proud uncle of another, William Rowe.
Copies of Telling the Map are available wherever books are sold. While the official publication date is July 11th, early copies are now available at Joseph-Beth Booksellers, 161 Lexington Green Circle, Lexington, KY. There will be a launch party at 7pmET on Tuesday, July 11th at the book store.
