"Brilliant, haunting, dark, joyous, remarkably compelling...immensely difficult to put down...a master storyteller." THE VILLAGE VOICE A childhood memory re-experienced, a funeral that brings about a family reunion, and the excavation of a swimming pool on the site of an old well, uncover family secrets and air the dirty linen in this behind-the-scenes look at life and family, memory and forgetfulness, anger and forgiveness in a small Southern town. "Falls in line with the best of classical Southern fiction...but Ms. Smith's vision is her own and places her among the best of contemporary Southern writers." THE ATLANTA CONSTITUTION "From the Paperback edition. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
