"Proves his ability to shift to completely different venues with ease. Set in the fetid swamps of northern Florida, the novel concerns the legal case of Hillary Van Wetter, who has been condemned to death for the murder of the county sheriff. Nineteen-year-old Jack James, son of the local newspaper publisher and delivery boy for the daily editions, narrates the story. Dexter has created vibrant characters who fit snugly in their hot, languid setting" (Gilbert Taylor). The basis of the fine (but underrated) film adaptaton, with an all-star cast headed by Zac Efron, Matthew McConaughey, and Nicole Kidman. An absolute "must-have" title for Pete Dexter collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue pen on the Front Limitation Page by Pete Dexter. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. Winner of the National Book Award in 1988 for "Paris Trout". One of the finest American writers of our time. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PETE DEXTER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 11607
