Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

THE WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD

When Phillip Carver receives, on a lonely Sunday evening, two successive telephone calls from his sisters, begging him to leave his home in Manhattan and return immediately to Memphis, he is slow to agree. His sisters, middle-aged and unmarried, want his help in averting the remarriage of their father, an elderly widower. And although Phillip wants no part in such manipulations, he finds himself unable to refuse to make the trip South...and into his own past.
