Beautiful beautiful writing Complicated characters that are intriguing A love song to the Mississippi coast The opening scenes of this story are very strange and he lost me a few times in the first 50 pages but I stuck with it and I m very happy I did Powerful writing The plot touches on several rather contemporary topics in the context of the early 20th century south The characters have stronger links to points south ie Cuba Nicaragua Haiti than to the rest of the US and there is a subtle but recurring argument about whose America they live in There are also lines running through of race and sexual orientation money and morality artistry and war It s a rich and satisfying literary explorationI got a copy to review from Net Galley

I liked this book a lot for the writing I suppose I cared about the main character yet also felt uite removed It is not a happy story not easy reading mostly but the writing is uite extraordinary A sentence might be five words and the next one will be a half a page but not ponderous I liked that there was no time wasted on unnecessary detail For example the weddingmarriage is not ever mentioned except as before or after and I liked that various characters have their future explained in a short paragraph not long after you meet them without any disruption to the story line Indeed a lot of the main character s future is foreshadowed in a similar way I can t say that I can compare Wascom s style to any author I have previously read and the story does not comfortably fit a simple genre Wascom coukd easily become an author that other people get higher university degrees by analysing his works I will seek out his earlier novels
