Praise for At Briarwood School for Girls

"Knight's characters are memorable and nuanced--a credit to his sharp, skillful writing. This is a stunning novel with a hint of the supernatural that's sure to delight readers."--Publishers Weekly

"A deft, charming Southern coming-of-age novel... A quick-paced, sharp, cleverly designed book by a talented writer."--Kirkus Reviews

"Like a package of sweets sent from home, At Briarwood School for Girls is replete with the familiar, beloved, humorous elements of a boarding school book--old trees and legacies, a headmistress, a ghost, and girls out of uniform--and surprise at what real life offers up. I read the book in an evening--so irresistible and satisfying was it, I kept turning the pages."--Christine Schutt

Praise for Eveningland

"The spirit of Eudora Welty broods over these adroitly crafted stories set in and around coastal Alabama, evoking a world coiled tight as a conch shell."--O Magazine

"Impressive... 'Water and Oil' is deft and wonderful, wholly original, and 'Smash and Grab' is sharp and fresh with an ending like something out of O. Henry or Thomas McGuane."--New York Times Book Review

"Novelistic...compressed and supple, with a Cheever-esque sensitivity to texture and light."--Garden & Gun
