Mandy Haynes introduces Jeffrey Blount

Jeffrey's new novel, Mr. Jimmy From Around the Way, graces January's cover.

“Mr. Jimmy from Around the Way is a mesmerizing look at one man’s fall from grace and the age-old struggle for redemption. James Henry Ferguson is a philanthropic Black businessman whose wounded ego leads him to a self-destructive act that destroys all he holds dear. Finding himself outcast and reviled not only by society but also by his beloved family, he retreats to his roots, seeking to reclaim the values that brought him the success and esteem he once enjoyed. James Henry Ferguson becomes plain old Mr. Jimmy to his new neighbors in a poverty-stricken town in rural Mississippi, and it is there he finds the true meaning of love, respect, and community. This tender story is for any of us who have fallen and found the only way up is by reaching out a hand to others.” - Cassandra King, author of Tell Me a Story: My Life with Pat Conroy
