"In his latest novel, Terry Roberts has created an unforgettable character in Jedidiah Robbins, a reverend who delivers both sermons and whiskey to his followers, but his novel transcends mere satire to become much more. Ultimately, The Holy Ghost Speakeasy and Revival contemplates complex questions of faith and morality in a world ripe with hypocrisy. Terry Roberts is an im-mensely gifted writer and he gets better with each book. Bravo!" -- Ron Rash, PEN/Faulkner Finalist and NYT bestselling author of Serena

"This ballad of a novel is an affectionate account of a charismatic evangelist and his devoted team. Part Elmer Gantry, part confidence man with a heart of gold, Jedidiah Robbins delights and surprises us in this Prohibition era romp of romance and moonshine, as impossible to resist as a Doc Watson solo. Rev. Robbins is haunted by the past, confronts the KKK, and though all too human at times, displays a bedrock of spirituality, and even makes friends with the Grim Reaper, in this picaresque narrative of loyalty and love in the mountains of North Carolina." -- Robert Morgan, author of Chasing the North Star

"Once again, Terry Roberts skillfully explores the South to find answers from the King James Bible and jars of white lightning from mountain stills." -Elizabeth Spencer, author of Voice at the Back Door and Light in the Piazza
