Fiction. Following his release from prison, Mason Laws returns to
the mountains of his youth where his estranged wife, Lavada, has
been caring for his ailing father in Mason's absence. As Mason and
Lavada each set forth to recover themselves, they remain entrenched
in the rural and rugged landscape that bore them and their own
haunted histories. This moving story tells of the families we're
born into, the families we make for ourselves, and how tightly
woven are the ties that bind. "Charles Dodd White's writing is
dark, gothic and steeped in a voice that is all his own. A SHELTER
OF OTHERS confronts what it means to be human."--Frank Bill"It
would be easy to draw comparisons to Harry Crews, Ron Rash, or
James Salter, but to do so would overlook a voice uniquely his own.
Charles Dodd White whittles language down to its most beautiful
form. His prose has been pared to poetry. Simple as that."--David
