Praise for The Weight of This World 

“Bleakly beautiful. . . [a] gorgeously written but pitiless novel about a region blessed by nature but reduced to desolation and despair.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
“Darkly stunning Appalachian noir.”—Huffington Post
“Scenes unfold at a furious pace, yet contain such rich description that readers will do well to read slowly, savoring Joy’s prose. . . .  Joy’s work perfectly aligns with the author’s self-described ‘Appalachian noir’ genre, as a sticky film of desperation and tragedy cloaks everything his characters touch. April, Aiden and Thad are hopelessly conflicted, dripping with history and heartache, yet they cling to unique dreams about what life could look like if they carried a bit less weight of the world upon their shoulders.”—Associated Press
