Praise for Surviving Nashville

“Stacy Barton’s considerable genius is that she looks at the world we all look at, but sees what the rest of us are unwilling to see.  And she doesn’t flinch. The disarming beauty of Surviving Nashville can be, at times, quite breathtaking. Here is the art of few words and powerful resonance. Stacy Barton’s brilliant collection will haunt you.

I purely loved this collection of short stories and I can’t recommend it highly enough.”  Beth Hoffman, author of the Best-Selling novel, Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt
