Praise for Three Rivers

“Tyson’s good-old-fashioned Southern drama appears right in time for storm season.”—Booklist


Three Rivers is reminiscent of a Beth Henley play or a Flannery O’Connor story. At its contemporary Southern Gothic best, Three Rivers propels the reader along like the deep, fast currents of the floodwaters Tyson so aptly describes, rushing toward a poignant, cathartic ending.”—The Clarion-Ledger (Jackson, MS)


Three Rivers feels like a modern Southern gothic tale, with big themes and memorable characters. Compelling and entertaining, it’s worth your time.” —Mississippi Business Journal


Three Rivers explores the unknowable relationship between the choices life demands and the permission it doesn’t ask for.“—The Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)


Buy Three Rivers at your local bookstore or at an online retailer.
