The novel, Taylor's first, tell the outlaw tale of Trenchmouth Taggart, a man born and orphaned in 1903, a man nick-named for his live long oral affliction. He picks up a gun during the West Virginia coal mine wars and spends the remainder of his years on the run, changing his identity and playing a mean harmonica. Trenchmouth Taggart's epic story, like the best ballads, etches its mark deep upon the memory.

About the Author:

M. Glenn Taylor was born and raised in Huntington, West Virginia. This is his first novel. His stories have been published in such literary journals as The Chattahoochee Review, Mid-American Review, Meridian, and Gulf coast.

Review:

Taylor's prose is so fluid and seemingly effortless that The Ballad of Trenchmouth Taggart bridges the usually irreconcilable gap between popular fiction and literary fiction. It's that rare creature - a literary page-turner - and it will please both the casual reader and the college professor . . . The Ballad of Trenchmouth Taggart is a stunning, fully realized, unique and ambitious book that proves there's still passion, fire and brilliance in the American novel. --Eric Miles Williamson, The Houston Chronicle --Sara Pritchard, Author of Lately and Crackpots
