In a note from the author, Matthew Neill Null says, “My home state of West Virginia has produced no great men, in the old sense of that phrase, no presidents, but hundreds of thousands have lived and died there, a rich human pageant. This novel is my bid to give them back their stories.” Honey from the Lion, Null’s debut novel, tells the story of a man in the midst of a major logging operation in West Virginia and the cast of characters who influence his fate, which Smith Henderson (Fourth of July Creek) calls “a master performance.” Null’s work has appeared in The PEN/O. Henry Prize Stories, The Best American Mystery Stories 2014, and others. He is the writing coordinator at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA.
