Winner of the American Academy of Arts and Letters' Sue Kaufman Prize for First Fiction. On a snowy Thanksgiving day in North Carolina, a dreamy eight-year-old is pushed headlong into the adult world by a violent quarrel between his parents. Jim Grimsley's brilliant first novel unfolds in a strikingly unconventional way--as the boy tells himself his own story. A shattering story of heartbreak, violence, and the endurance of the spirit. "Tell everyone."--Dorothy Allison, author of BASTARD OUT OF CAROLINA.


Baker & Taylor
Eight-year-old southerner Danny Crell recounts his premature entry into manhood, precipitated by a violent quarrel between his father, an abusive drunk, and his mother, whose emotional detachment is nearly as frightening. A first novel.
