  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) April 17, 2022 - Sweetgum County is a place where death lingers on the doorstep of the soul. Nostalgia holds the residents in its fist allowing time to stand still for a moment, embracing the lonely. All while small town motions are a place of entrapment that resolve in renewal.

    Welcome to Sweetgum County. Population: one more.

    Leah Holbrook Sackett's books include Swimming Middle River and White Knight Escort Service. In Catawampus in Sweetgum County, Leah unwraps a small town's sprawl and the indelible mark left by its people. This well-woven collection lays bare the residents struggles and victories over time.

    Leah's stories have appeared in over 50 literary journals. She is an adjunct lecturer in both English and the Communication & Media departments at the University of Missouri - St. Louis, where she earned her M.F.A. Leah's stories explore journeys toward autonomy and the boundaries placed on the individual by society, family, and self.
