Kenneth Carroll is a clarion voice that will outlast the birds in the trees. He’s a mentor for every heart that cries out to be heard— to learn how to speak. He is funny and sad. He writes of the past with a style that can’t be imitated and his stories are indelible. From our shattered lives, Carroll brings light to our task. From the collapse of dreams, he restores a wind of goodwill and courage. From all that is fatal in language, he infuses it with life everlasting. --GC
