|“Passionate, sensuous, savagely intense, and remarkable” stories of the American South, “like some franker, modernized Flannery O’Connor” (The New Yorker).|
Welcome to Lookout Mountain on the border of Georgia and Tennessee. Mixing white-hot yearning with daring humor, this short-story collection of infidelity, spirituality, sexuality, and family is at once “strange, thrilling, and disarmingly honest . . . the closet thing I’ve seen in years to Donald Barthelme’s insouciance, sweetness and ominousness” (The New York Times Book Review).
These fifteen linked tales confront readers with dark theological complexities, fractured marriages, and mercurial temptations: a husband discovers the decaying corpse of his wife’s lover in their bed; an enigmatic deaf man becomes the catalyst in the destruction of his church; a child’s perspective on life is altered after the attempted murder of a loved one; an embarrassed teenager is forced to attend a pool party with her quadriplegic mother; the hole in a young boy’s heart is magically sealed when he falls in love for the first time.
“Fasten your seat belt. . . . These amazing stories explore the human boundaries between the physical world and the spiritual—lust, betrayal, and loss in perfect balance with love, redemption, and grace.” —Jill McCorkle, author of Life After Life
“These are stories that make you stop whatever you’re doing and read. . . . I salute a brilliant new American writer.” —Tom Franklin, Edgar Award–winning author
“A brilliant new voice in American fiction has arrived. . . . She has earned a place alongside Amy Hempel, Lydia Davis, and Alice Munro.” —David Means, author of Hystopia
