Synopsis: First published in 1976, The Year the Lights Came On was Terry Kay's debut novel. Revolving around the electrification of rural northeast Georgia shortly after the end of World War II, the novel has become a classic coming-of-age story. Kay, now an acclaimed writer with an international following, has reread the novel with the eyes of a seasoned storyteller. Cutting here and adding there, Kay has enriched an already highly comical and poignant work. The Year the Lights Came On is ready to find its place in the hearts of a new generation.

About the Author: Terry Kay, the author of eleven books, was inducted into the Georgia Writers Hall of Fame in 2006. Nine of his books are novels, including To Dance with the White Dog and The Valley of Light, which received both the Best Fiction Award from the Georgia Writers Association and the Townsend Prize. Kay lives in Athens, Georgia.
