    Born in 1917, Tennessee author Peter Taylor won the Pulitzer Prize for this exceptional work of literature. The well-to-do Carver family moves to Memphis from Nashville, where they become embroiled in a domestic dispute over the widower patriarch's decision to remarry.

    Story

    I am dumbfounded as to how this book won a Pulitzer Prize. I can only conjecture that Peter Taylor's powerful friends persuaded the powers that be to give him the award as a prize for his total career. Nothing much happens in this completely humorless book. And I am at a loss to explain why the reader chose to narrate the book without a trace of the Nashville/Memphis accent of the book's narrator.
