Read full description of the books:
this is one of the best stay more novels, but by saying that i am still recommending, as i always do, for each one of you to sit down with his entire collection and read them all in order. and i don't want to hear any whining about your lives and the things you have to get done other than reading an obscure american writer's complete works, because i am wholly uninterested in your complaints. if you have ever heard a nagging inner voice telling you, "you know, you should probably read proust", then might i suggest doing this first? because i like proust, i do, i am devoting my summer to finishing the bastard, but as far as commitments go, somehow reading 13 books by harington will take less time than reading 6 by proust. and you will be the cool kid on the block that is an expert in a brilliant, unsung american hero. you don't want to be known as a terrorist, do you?? with your foreign literature and your smug face? seriously - buy locally, be a true patriot, and may he look upon you in his afterlife with favor.

Read information about the authorDonald Douglas Harington was an American author. All but the first of his novels either take place in or have an important connection to "Stay More," a fictional Ozark Mountains town based somewhat on Drakes Creek, Arkansas, where Harington spent summers as a child.
Harington was born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas. He lost nearly all of his hearing at age 12 due to meningitis. This did not prevent him from picking up and remembering the vocabulary and modes of expression among the Ozark denizens, nor in conducting his teaching career as an adult.
Though he intended to be a novelist from a very early age, his course of study and his teaching career were in art and art history. He taught art history in New York, New England, and South Dakota before returning to the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, his alma mater, where he taught for 22 years before his retirement on 1 May 2008.
Harington is acclaimed as one of America's greatest writers of fiction, if not one of its best known. Entertainment Weekly called him "America's greatest unknown writer." The novelist and critic Fred Chappell said of him "Donald Harington isn't an unknown writer. He's an undiscovered continent." Novelist James Sallis, writing in the Boston Globe: "Harington's books are of a piece -- the quirkiest, most original body of work in contemporary U.S. letters."
Harington died of pneumonia, after a long illness, in Springdale on 7 November 2009.
Harington's novels are available from The Toby Press in a uniform edition, with cover illustrations by Wendell Minor. Since his death, The Toby Press has made available the entire set of Harington novels as The Complete Novels of Donald Harington.
