Michael Holloway Perronne (b. 1979, Mississippi) is an American author. The controversy led to Perronne making appearances on national television and mentions in national gay newsmagazines. Allen was quoted saying, I guess we dig a big hole and dump them in and bury them.

Critically acclaimed novelist and Mississippi native, Michael Holloway Perronne explores how a forbidden teen romance and the violent act of a desperate boy forever binds a community. One year after Hurricane Katrina devastated the small coastal town of Long Beach, Mississippi, two families with deep roots in its Southern traditions are desperately trying to rebuild the way of life they have always known. But some, including the Mexican-American Santos family, are bringing a large dose of previously all-but-unknown cultures to this insular community. While one young man, a gay prodigal son now living in San Francisco, finds himself drawn back to the very area and culture he fought so hard to leave behind. In this emotionally charged novel, three families struggle to find the beauty that can arise from the worst of nightmares.
  • Michael Holloway Perronne has started another great novel... Always leaving me wanting more than he gives you. This book has a lot of characters whose lives weave in and out of each other through a few main families. Each family has complex characters who could be a book in and of themselves. Michael makes the characters likeable but just stratches the surface of all the story lines that could have been written.
    Overall I really enjoyed this book - Michael created a good paced story that draws you in and makes you feel a small part of what it's like to live in a small town after Katrina.
    Even the author confused his own characters once in awhile but it's understandable with that many running from page to page.
    This book is worth reading and probably not Michael's best but still a good book. I look foward to his next book. May it be longer than 150 pages!! 150 pages are just a tease!

  • For the most part, I enjoyed this novel. It is a little short, and I think there were some flaws with the character development (mainly, traits were given to us artificially, with heavy handed language)but for the most part the characters were relatable and likeable. That being said, the plot is well thought out and kept my interest throughout.

    Despite the interesting plot and likeable characters, the editting is so poor that I was constantly distracted by problems with grammar and even names. Several punctuation marks are missing, an innocent mistake that I can forgive. However, on a couple of occassions, the author seemed to have rewritten a sentence and forgot to change the words to fit the newly formed sentence.

    The most flagrent lack of editting was that the author couldn't keep track of the characters' names. One of the minor characters is consitantly getting a name change, alternately being called T.J. or A.J. In one of the more important scenes, the author confuses the names two of the main characters.

    This book should be rereleased after being looked at by a proper editor.
