Donigan Merritt has an MFA from the Iowa Writers Workshop and has published seven novels, including "Possessed by Shadows" (Other Press, 2005), "The Common Bond" (Other Press, 2008), and “Blossom” (2011). “Blossom” paints a picture of the beginning of the Civil Rights Movement in southern Arkansas. The protagonist, David Early, returns to the small southern town of Blossom after a 20 year absence when his father dies. In a series of flashbacks, he remembers the struggles with racism after he takes a stand with the town's African-American community in its first pro-integration protest--causing him guilt and putting his life in danger. This book is about the Deep South, about long memories and our inability to escape our personal histories.
