U.S. Veteran Publishes First Novel

 
DETROIT - Dec. 20, 2019 - PRLog -- Jan-Carol Publishing, Inc., of Johnson City, Tennessee, is proud to announce the release of Greezy Creek by George R. Justice.

Justice holds a B.A. English Literature from the University of Detroit. He has been published twice for short stories, twice for poetry, and was the movie critic for Oakland County's Daily Tribune (1978-79). Justice is a U.S. Army veteran, and he wrote numerous articles, from human interest to military, for Stars and Stripes. Greezy Creek is his first novel. Justice and his wife reside in Ferndale, Michigan.

Greezy Creek takes place in Kentucky's Appalachian Highlands (circa. 1930's), in a world where habits and customs often bewilder: where the ties of kinship and ancestry hold to unswerving lines, where moonshiners leave incipient trails, and the strains of hard times too often coalesce into the empty-eyed face of hardscrabble. It's where Bobby Yonts and Rubin Cain (as good as brothers) come of age and test the limits of things new and out of bounds. But it's the odious hand of cruelty that underscores the unraveling of their naivety and binds them to the unwritten code of the mountains, one which guarantees you're going to get what's coming to you.

A first-person narrative, Greezy Creek tells of an Appalachia honed by the unacquainted ways of the Scot-Irish hybrids cloistered in its deepest regions. Character-driven with rich historical insights, Greezy Creek takes readers behind the veil of a family known for its fierce, ingrained independence; a family bound by self-determination and all that's necessary to survive. Yet, even from their bittersweet and ill-famed existence comes the imprint of their wit and wisdom, the uniqueness of their wilderness ways, and what it means to be bound by blood.

Greezy Creek is available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and through Jan-Carol Publishing.
