Editorial Reviews

Review

“A beautifully written book.” —The Atlantic Monthly
 
“Shirley Ann Grau is one of those rare writers who creates a world, draws the reader into it, and makes [the reader] somehow happy there no matter what goes on . . .” —Newsweek
 
“Her best novel.” —Saturday Review

About the Author

Shirley Ann Grau (b. 1929) is a Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist of nine novels and short story collections, whose work is set primarily in her native South. Grau was raised in Alabama and Louisiana, and many of her novels document the broad social changes of the Deep South during the twentieth century, particularly as they affected African Americans. Grau’s first novel, The Hard Blue Sky (1958), about the descendants of European pioneers living on an island off the coast of Louisiana, established her as a master of vivid description, both for characters and locale, a style she maintained throughout her career. Her public profile rose during the civil rights movement, when her dynastic novel Keepers of the House (1964), which dealt with race relations in Alabama, earned her a Pulitzer Prize.
