Praise for The Truest Pleasure:

Robert Morgan's fiction is "about people who have a deep sense of themselves, who were not created by a huge and complicated society but by a small, simple one in which individual character sprouted slowly and in trial bloomed... wise, eloquent."

— New York Times Book Review
. . .

Robert Morgan's lyric mountain language is equal to the epic sweep of history, to the grandeur of the land itself.

— Lee Smith
. . .

Words plain and deep as the hills...

— Booklist
. . .

Robert Morgan's The Truest Pleasure is a beautiful, riveting book.

— Lorrie Moore, Who Will Run the Frog Hospital?
. . .

There is comfort and humor in Morgan's evocation of country people trying to survive.
