Description: In the reign of Teddy Roosevelt, life in this small Delta town continues much as it had before the Civil War. Though its black citizens are technically free, all power resides in the hands of unreconstructed planters, who abide the occasional liberal or moderate in their midst as they would a dotty relative, and who can rely on the bitterness of poor whites to enforce an old vicious order in which they played no part at all save flunky.

This descriptive calm is shattered by its internal contradictions when the conflicts within the once powerful Payne family are reflected and distorted in the town itself, whose post office (and here is the historical basis of the plot) is capably managed by a black woman with ties to the ante-bellum tradition and the better world trying even then to emerge.

A novel in which land and family and memory alike are shot through with violence and love -- and the most powerful new voice in Southern literature for a great many years.
