Capitol Reads

October's Capitol Read is The Stories of Breece D'J Pancake

Breece D'J Pancake cut short a remarkably promising career when he took his own life in 1979 at the age of twenty-six. In 1983 the posthumous publication of this book--a collection of stories that depict, with astonishing power and grace, the world of Pancake's native rural West Virginia--electrified the literary world with a force that still resounds across two decades.
