Clyde Edgerton returns to the setting of his own childhood to introduce us to the good God-fearing citizens of small town America at mid century - good ole boys, good little boys, little old ladies with loaded shot guns, and an ancient dog who predicts the weather - and to tell the story of what happened back when rootless amorality met up with deep-rooted moral flexibility.
