About the Author

Gin Phillips lives in Birmingham, Alabama; THE WELL AND THE MINE was turned down by every mainstream US publisher to whom it was submitted and was eventually published by Hawthorne, a tiny press in Oregon. It went on to win the Barnes & Noble Discover Prize and the paperback rights went to Penguin US.

Reviews

** 'Gripping' Red ** 'A lovely, subtle novel, a moving portrait of the Depression-era American south' Observer ** 'A gentle, thoughtful and moving book' Psychologies ** 'Phillips portrays the characters with uncommon clarity, demonstrating human nature at its best and worst. The result is a book that triumphs on the insight as much as the lyricism of its narrative' Easy Living ** 'A gripping evocation of hard times and unquenchable hope ... A tender-hearted, involving tale of a hard-scrabble existence in a mining town in 1930s Alabama ... A vibrant novel' Marie Claire ** 'The warmth and wisdom of the writing make this a highly rewarding read' Kate Saunders, The Times ** 'The Well and the Mine doesn't just give you characters who'll stay with you - it gives you a whole world' Fannie Flagg, author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe ** 'A tight-knit miner's family struggles against poverty ... Phillips fully enters the lives of her honorable characters and brings them vibrantly to the page' Publishers' Weekly ** 'Gripping' Red ** 'A dazzling new novelist ... A bold debut, full of heart' O, the Oprah Magazine **'Beautiful and gracefully written - practically perfect' Emma Giacon, Amazon (Booksellers' Choice) **' 'A thought-provoking and moving read' Sarah Clarke, The Torbay Bookshop (Booksellers' Choice)
