Reviews

"The novel is beautifully written throughout, with descriptions of the land, sounds, and even Billie's dog, Rufus, especially enthralling. Benz's inclusion of Clifton's lost work make Billie's experiences authentic."

-- "Library Journal (starred review)"

"Populated by a cast of delightfully untrustworthy characters, and told from multiple points of view, Billie's quest to discover what really happened one night thirty years earlier is propulsive from the outset...A beautiful and devastating portrait of the modern South, this book will linger in the minds of readers."

-- "Publishers Weekly"

"The music of the spoken word shows that Benz has a strong ear and appreciation for Southern culture that rings true."

-- "Kirkus Reviews"
