Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Over the course of twenty years and eight novels, James Wilcox has established himself as one of the most distinctive and beloved voices of the South, a comic master whose work has been praised by writers as diverse as Robert Penn Warren and Anne Tyler. From Modern Baptists to Plain and Normal, he has charted the collision of the stubbornly genteel Old South with a world of franchise food and ethnic diversity, as time-cherished manners and mores threaten to vanish completely. In Heavenly Days-his first novel in five years-Wilcox returns to the familiar landscape of Tula Springs, Louisiana, and introduces Lou Jones, a sweetly hapless heroine trying to come to terms with a way of life for which she is utterly unequipped.

About the Author

Wilcox brilliantly navigates the fine line between hilarity and pathos. (The New York Times Book Review)One doesn't read Heavenly Days as much as live it with Lou Jones. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
