Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Born mute to a drunken mother and a demented father, tortured Euchrid Eucrow finds more compassion in the family mule than in his fellow men. But he alone will grasp the cruel fate of Cosey Mo, the beautiful young prostitute in the pink caravan on Hooper's Hill. And it is Euchrid, spiraling ever deeper into his mad angelic vision, who will ultimately redeem both the town and its people.

Review:

"[An] innovative, if wildly idiosyncratic, tall tale satirizing religious fanaticism....Although Cave's manic effort will not lure traditionalists, it may snare the more adventurous." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Surprising, remarkable." The Atlanta Journal

Synopsis:

Cave's only novel to date takes on the southern gothic in this bizarre baroque tale. Born mute to a drunken mother and a demented father, tortured Euchrid Eucrow finds more compassion in the family mule than in his fellow men.
