Publisher's Summary

The year is 1952, and E.F. Bloodworth has returned to his home - a forgotten corner of Tennessee - after 20years of roaming. The wife he walked out on has withered and faded, his three sons are grown and angry. Warren is a womanizing alcoholic, Boyd is driven by jealousy to hunt down his wife's lover, and Brady puts hexes on his enemies from his mamma's porch. Only Fleming, the old man's grandson, treats him with the respect his age commands, and sees past all the hatred to realize the way it can posion a man's soul. It is ultimately the love of Raven Lee, a sloe-eyed beauty from another town, that gives Fleming the courage to reject this family curse.

Story and Narration a perfect match

What did you love best about Provinces of Night?

The poetry and succinctness of the writing. The metaphors and bleak or beautiful descriptions took my breath away. Narration by Dick Hill seemed as if written for him to tell the tale.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Cannot pick a favorite, all had their charm, ferocity, humorous, or darkly enchanting narratives.

Any additional comments?

You won't regret the time you spend in the Provinces of Night....

Treasured prose! Excellent plot!

An amazing writer and one that gets to take a seat along McCullers, O'Connor and Faulkner. Wonderful plot that keeps you reading and great prose.
