In the tradition of the great Southern storytellers, Have You Heard explores a small town torn apart by scandal.

Author of two critically acclaimed novels, Anderson Ferrell is back with this sprawling, atmospheric tale of the American South. The attempted murder of a right-wing North Carolina senator throws a sudden media spotlight onto the alleged would-be assassin - Jerry Chiffon, who just happened to be sporting a red ladies' suit, a wig, and a fake Chanel purse at the time - and onto Jerry's tiny hometown of Branch Creek, N.C. As three separate narrators relate slightly differing versions of the story, the pieces start to come together. What really happened? How could a beloved, albeit slightly odd, boy come to such an end?

Darkly funny and full of heart, Have You Heard reveals a world that, despite all its particularities, feels like home.
