"A big, all American, Technicolor dreamboat of a book...This is a great novel."
STEPHEN KING
In TENDER, novelist Mark Childress has redefined the American epic. He takes us on a wild ride through the last three decades as his fictional hero, Leroy Kirby, makes his meteoric rise to stardom, from the poverty-stricken child of an overprotective mother and absent father, to an icon who stands for everything American -- a role that will ultimately consume him.

From the Back Cover:

"A big, all-American, Technicolor® dreamboat of a book . . . This is a great novel."
--Stephen King

"HAUNTING . . . An evocation of an American phenomenon and the time and place that nurtured an ascent to glory. Childress gets everything right."
--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"A personal portrait that focuses on the innocence and insecurities of a young man as well as his legendary fame . . . It reads with a rhythm as fast and riveting as that of the music described within."
--Atlanta Journal & Constitution

"Takes myth, dream, and music and turns them into something miraculous, dazzling."
--Pat Conroy
