Louisiana Power & Lightby John Dufresne
Synopses & Reviews
Heralded as a highly readable Faulkner, Dufresne creates characters who enlighten, confound, entertain, and touch readers with their unique perceptions and philosophies on life. His brilliant first novel recounts the trials and tribulations of the Fontana family--and leaves readers with a legacy of raucous laughter.
A favorite novel by "a generous and lyric storyteller" () known for his tragicomic voice and unforgettable characters.
Billy Wayne is the sole survivor of his oddball line of marginal folk. When he acquires a priestly vocation it seems likely he will be the last Fontana, until hearing a young woman"s confession propels him into an impulsive marriage.
