Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Delia Byrd packs up her old Datsun and her daughter Cissy and gets on the Santa Monica Freeway heading south and east, she is leaving everything she has known for ten years: the tinsel glitter of the rock 'n' roll world; her dreams of singing and songwriting; and a life lived on credit cards and whiskey with a man who made promises he couldn't keep. Delia Byrd is going back to Cayro, Georgia, to reclaim her life--and the two daughters she left behind... Told in the incantatory voice of one of America's most eloquent storytellers, Cavedweller is a sweeping novel of the human spirit, the lost and hidden recesses of the heart, and the place where violence and redemption intersect.

Cavedweller is just a stunning read. I've been a longtime fan of Dorothy Allison's non-fiction, and this is my first foray into her much celebrated work as a novelist. Delia Byrd is a character you can't break away from, and her friends and family are as real as any walking around you while you hold this book. A layered tale, a generational legacy, and a very palpable experience all reside within the pages of Cavedweller.
