About this title:


This is a memoir of Harry Crew's earliest years - a sharply remembered portrait of the people, locales and circumstances that shaped him and destined him to become a storyteller. The book includes accounts of grinding poverty, but also of snakes who could talk, and of ghosts and devils.

Review: "It is Crews' great gift that he can show us how absolutely cursed, and alsolutely beautiful, we are. . . . Crews burns through the easy ways in which we would like to regard ourselves; what he leaves behind is something better, something touched by the refiner's fire."--"New York Newsday"
