I am especially proud of this endorsement for my novel, Robert Walker, since it came from Pat Morgan, whose book, The Concrete Killing Fields, is a study of the homeless in Memphis.
“Corey Mesler’s latest novel, Robert Walker, is a gem, a realistic story about a fictional, middle-aged, homeless man who’ll steal your heart. What makes the book so special is that it gently leads the reader to a fuller understanding of the losses and traumatic events that so often lead to sleeping on the streets or in shelters or in jails. I quickly found myself intrigued by “Robert Walker,” still well enough to know that he has problems, but sick enough to simply continue trudging through the streets, parks, soup kitchens and other outreach programs along the well-beaten path of homelessness in Memphis, Tennessee. Luckily, that path includes a program (fictional) where he finds a measure of understanding, healing, and hope, all of which are critical to recovering from, and exiting homelessness, something the author clearly understands. Read this gentle book and you may well have a better understanding of homelessness.”
