About this title

Synopsis:

A young Japanese seaman jumps ship off the coast of Georgia and washes ashore on a barrier island inhabited by a strange mix of rednecks, descendents of slaves, genteel retired people, and a colony of artists. The result is a sexy, savagely hilarious tragicomedy of thwarted expectations, mistaken identity, love, jealousy and betrayal. "An absolutely stunning work, full of brilliant cross-cultural insights."--The New York Times Book Review.

About the Author:

Corahessan Boyle is the author of three collections of short stories - Descent of Man, Greasy Lake and If the River was Whiskey - and three novels - Water Music, Budding Prospects and World's End, which won the 1988 PEN/Faulkner Award.
