If you're the kind of person who really enjoys off-the-wall humor and can accept the premise of cockroaches, then I wholeheartedly recommend "The Cockroaches of Stay More." Although it's very humorous, it's filled with compassion and sentiment.

I also recommend "Lightning Bug," one of his early novels of Stay More, and the one that got me hooked on him.

For a more recent book, you might try "With."

Here's a quote from Amazon about Harington: Donald Harington was one of America's greatest writers of fiction. His fifteen novels have been called jubilant, lyrical, foxy, captivating, delicate, bawdy, playful, reckless, joyful, courageous. Set in the fictional hamlet of Stay More, Arkansas, Harington's stories blend myth, dreamscape and sharply observed speech and manners to depict a rich, eccentric, rural society.

In talking with other Arkansans (I am one), for those who enjoy his work we don't simply like him as a writer; rather, I would say we love his work and the body of literature that he so lovingly created.

Because of the rural nature of his work, he may not be for everyone.
