Review J. Patrick Redmond brilliantly recreates the disunion with the town of Fort Sackville, small-town roots, small-town bigotry, sometimes under the guise of piety and concern. There are parts that all of us can and will recognize, laughing out loud at some parts and crying at others . . . [It] will touch your heart. --Vincennes Sun-Commercial J. Patrick Redmond's Some Go Hungry is a story of reckoning. Like so many young gay men, Grey Daniels has to leave home to find himself--and he has to return home to rural Fort Sackville, Indiana, to confront a past of fear, homophobia, and murder. Redmond deftly weaves together Grey's return to his hometown and the family restaurant with the long-unsolved murder of a young gay man and the secrets and religious hypocrisy buried with it. Some Go Hungry will have you staying up late turning the pages. --Taylor M.
