Publisher's Summary

National Book Award, Fiction, 2011

A hurricane is building, threatening the coastal town of Bois Sauvage, Mississippi, and Esch's father is growing concerned. He's a hard drinker, and it isn't often he worries about the family. As the 12 days that make up the novel's framework yield to a dramatic conclusion, this unforgettable family - a clan of motherless children sacrificing for one another as they can, protecting and nurturing where love is scarce - pulls itself up to face another day.
