"'[It] may tell an old, old story - that it is only when you are in danger of losing someone that you begin truly to appreciate them - but it has rarely been told so well... the depiction of his native landscape, with its Spanish moss and snapping turtles, its "white heat and green humidity" is superb.' - Mark Sanderson, Sunday Telegraph 'Impressive... thoroughly gripping' - Big Issue 'A mighty first novel, told with cinematic grip... Gautreaux himself takes the next step in the moody, sweet dance of southern literature.' - GQ '[It] holds you snug and won't let go' - Entertainment Weekly 'Marries the power of a first novel with the wisdom of a second... The rippingest novel of the year, with writing that dances and swells like a jitterbug on a hot skillet.' - Philadelphia Enquirer"
