Thank you for making my book such a success!
J. Donald Oakes
Donald Oakes has had an amazing life. He survived a hellish childhood riddled with horrible dreams, and even worse living conditions. Suffering in the isolation of his own shame and seeming dishonor, to rise above the crowd and lead a charmed life.
His oration and quick wit illuminate the page with characters that seem to be someone that you know, or have known in your own life as he chronicles what life was like in the impoverished south of his childhood. A brutally honest book which holds nothing back, but leaves you with a sense that good can triumph over even the most desperate of situations.
J. Donald Oakes has a humorous and witty writing style that has been compared to the great American authors. He creates a powerful vision of the time and place he describes. You can almost smell the Pea River Swamp of his childhood, and taste the Mediterranean Sea air during his time in Crete. Feel his pain, and his joy by reading "The Stump's on Fire and I'm Naked".
