Notes: "Strong Hollow" tells the story of Jackson Bigney, a young man coping with a crippling past of repression, alcoholism, and poverty. In the ten years that this novel depicts, Jackson comes to terms with his identity, his family relationship, and his homosexuality.

"Little's deut is impressive; her novel is chaotic and sometimes rambling, but she somehow keeps the horrid Bigney mob at bay long enough to craft a compelling story out of Jackson's inarticulate attempts at solitude. 'Strong Hollow' skirts hokiness but doesn't quite collide with it, largely because of Little's powerful emotional intelligence." Jack Illingworth
