MindStir Media author Thomas G. Morgan receives positive reviews from New York Review of Books and others

Thomas G. Morgan, author of Shotgun Preacher and Glimpses, has received positive reviews for both books from the prestigious New York Review of Books, dated December 21, 2017. 

New York Review of Books on Shotgun Preacher: “A celebrated Lefty from the region of Debs and Dreiser barely escapes Indiana prison for subversives in the sixties. A communist catholic, advised the only way a father in 1980 could win custody of his children was to be a Methodist minister. He became one accordingly. The convergent chaos toward his ministry would be radically understated as a ‘disturbance in church’.” 

New York Review of Books on Glimpses: “Morgan displays venerable literary skills:  a preternatural bat like sonar that senses how to address readers in a voice possessing both immediacy and retrospective wisdom.” 

John McFall of Hitachi Data Systems also praised Shotgun Preacher: “Edgy in every direction. I hated I couldn’t put this book down.” 

Alan M. Wald, Chandler Davis Prof. of Literature, University of Michigan, raved: “You will think long about his words after you finish this book.” 

Shotgun Preacher and Glimpses are available at Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com and other fine retailers worldwide. Wholesale orders can be placed through Ingram. Thomas Morgan is available for interviews.

About author Thomas G. Morgan: 

Born (1940) to working class parents who experienced Terre Haute’s General Strike (1935). He has undergraduate and graduate degrees from Indiana University. In 1960, he hitchhiked across Europe, North Africa and Russia working on farms, writing feature stories for the Terre Haute Tribune. Returning home, he chaired the student-faculty committee that founded the Eugene V. Debs Foundation for Socialist History and Thought. The next year, he was indicted under the Indiana Anti-Subversive Act as an officer of the Young Socialist Alliance and faced two to six years imprisonment. An International Defense Committee was formed; Bertrand Russell Chairman, convened Norman Mailer and Malcolm X on the east coast; film actor Sterling Hayden on west coast. Hayden had been an OSS operative who fought with Resistance fighters against Hitler.  Meeting Tom, his compliment was, “America is becoming an ‘Occupied Country’, but I’ve met a young man from Indiana convincing me there are pockets of resistance.” Tom Morgan’s life and writing continue that resistance.
