Product description

Review

"Taut, masterfully executed efforts tracing the growth of character. Even those that are slightly off the mark are revealing in their depictions of quirky southern poor whites with precious few aspirations.... The bleakness of Yarbrough's landscape is thus richly tempered by the promise of a modest deliverance."--Publishers Weekly

"Yarbrough's collection is a compassionate portrait of small-town life in the Deep South. Indianola, Mississippi is often the setting, and often the narrator looks back at the misunderstood events of childhood, at the complexities of family relationships.... Lives get sidetracked, but family ties are deep and redeeming. These stories are regional in setting, but they are universal in appeal."--Library Journal

"Yarbrough writes of small-town southern life with humor and insight"--Booknews

"Thank heaven for work like Brother Yarbrough's--fiction fine and wise enough to keep an acre of angels sitting and dancing till dawn."--Lee K. Abbott, author of Dreams of Distant Lives

"An outstanding collection of stories that are funny and sad and deeply touching. Steve Yarbrough has written a wonderful book."--Larry Brown, author of Dirty Work
