'strong'Robert Gipe'/strong' lives in Harlan Kentucky and grew up in Kingsport Tennessee. His fiction has appeared in ''Appalachian Heritage Still Motif'/' and ''Pine Mountain Sand & Gravel.'/'''Weedeater'/' picks up six years after the end of Robert Gipes first novel ''Trampoline'/' and continues the story of the people of Canard County Kentucky living through the last hurrah of the coal industry and battling with opioid abuse.'''em'Weedeater'/em' is a contemporary story of love and loss told by a pair of eastern Kentucky mountaineers. Gene is a lovelorn lawnman who bears witness to the misadventures of a family entangled in drugs artmaking and politics a family beset by environmental and selfdestruction. And a young mother Dawn Jewell is at the center of the family. She spends the pages of 'em'Weedeater'/em' searchingfor lost family members lost youth lost community and lost heart. 'em'Weedeater'/em' is a story about how we put our lives back together when we lose the things we thought we couldnt bear losing how we find new purpose in what we thought were scraps and trash caught in the weeds. :'br/''br/' :'em'Weedeater'/em' picks up six years after the end of Robert Gipes first novel 'em'Trampoline'/em' and continues the story of the people of Canard County Kentucky. In 'em'Weedeater'/em' the reader finds Canard County living through the last hurrah of the coal industry and the most turbulent and deadly phase of the communitys battle with opioid abuse. The events it chronicles are frantic but its voice is by turns taciturn and angry filled with humor and stoic grace.'/'Robert Gipe is the real deal: a genuine storyteller a writer of wit and style wisdom and heart. His characters are as alive as anybody I know and his sentences jump off the page. I find myself reading them out loud to whoevers handy and saying śThis is how its done.ŁWhen [Gipes] prose is coupled with his cartoonlike drawings in which the characters tend to stare directly at the reader the effect is similar to watching a documentary film. This strategy imbues his work with a kind of realism that is not quite traditional fiction and not quite a graphic novel but engrossing nonetheless. His characters come cross as absolutely real simultaneously funny and heartbreaking.Ł''Weedeater'/' had me by the heart and the gut. It is big bad throaty loving storytelling of giant proportions and devastating quickness. Its an incredible book and its made me a Robert Gipe fan for life. Read this.ŁDawn Jewell is still in the soup and not a one of us will ever outrun Canard County. For that I am grateful. Listen to this book. It sings the truth of a place where everything bends where the stories of the people explode like giant dandelions. This book is alive. Nobody writes like Robert Gipe.ŁDawn Jewell is back and so is Robert Gipe. ''Weedeater'/' is a pitchperfect look at our beloved Appalachia at once an amalgam of masterful writ
