MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Sweet as Cane, Salty as Tears
"Ken Wheaton's got his Cajun on. His book is funny, raw, wrenching, a heartfelt tale of the complexities of family, love and that place we call home--and, at the end of it all, how stories help heal and restore the wounded spirit in us all." --Ken Wells, author of Meely LaBauve and Crawfish Mountain

"One of the best novels I'll read this year. Under all the little ruptures in our lives is a mud fight for the soul. For Wheaton the balm for it all is the story and storytelling, an essential inquiry in search of the flashes of angelism embedded in the dirt and grit of our human passage." --Darrell Bourque, author of Megan's Guitar and Other Poems from Acadie and former Louisiana poet laureate

"Take a dysfunctional Southern family and put them on social media and it's Katy-bar-the-door. With humor and poignancy, Wheaton shows just how strong and everlasting the call to home can be, even for those determined to escape." --Brynn Bonner, author of Paging the Dead and Death in Reel Time

Praise for The First Annual Grand Prairie Rabbit Festival
"Delightful . . . Wheaton writes with an infectious energy." --Publishers Weekly

"Warmed my heart faster than a double shot of Wild Turkey and kept me laughing through the night. This is a rollicking irreverent debut. It's also a charming love story with a heart as big as Louisiana. I am a huge Ken Wheaton fan." --Matthew Quick, author of Silver Linings Playbook

"Readers need to hold on to their hats because Wheaton's roller-coaster ride of a book has hilarious highs that plunge to soul-baring angst, then zoom back up to the top." --Booklist
