Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Through memorable language and bawdy humor, Gurganus returns to his mythological Falls, North Carolina, home of . This first work in a decade offers three novellas mirroring today's face-lifted South, a zone revolutionized around freer sexuality, looser family ties, and superior telecommunications, yet it celebrates those locals who have chosen to stay local. In doing so, uncovers certain old habits--adultery, incest, obsession--still very much alive in our New South, a "Winesburg, Ohio" with high-speed Internet.

Synopsis:

"This book underscores what we have long known--Gurganus stands among the best writers of our time." --Ann Patchett
