"Delightful and entertaining."

PEOPLE

When Jennifer, a college student, returns to her childhood home of Hoot Owl Holler with a tape recorder, the tales of murder and suicide, incest and blood ties, bring to life a vibrant story of a doomed family that still refuses to give up....

"Deft and assured....[Lee Smith] is nothing less than masterly."

I never would have read this book, I think, if it hadn't been an assignment for one of my classes. To my delight, not only did I enjoy it, I think it was one of the best books I've read. Smith has awesome characterization skills, and a rich appreciation and respect for her setting (Appalachia). I will be reading this again.
