About this title

From the Back Cover:

"Evocative and ruthless. . . . French beautifully sketches Holly's tale, painting characters rich enough to demand sympathy even as they react with unthinking racism."-Washington Post Book World

"Illuminates a great deal not only about black and white Americans and the history of our depressed, desperate intermingling but also about the sturdiness of humbler notions like decency and love. . . . The beauty of Mr. French's language is exceptional."-New York Times Book Review

"Dramatically vivid. . . . Readers will enjoy Holly for the distinctive poetry of much of its prose, and for its evocation of an isolated world that unhappily reflects too accurately the larger truths of our nation's racial divide."-Chicago Tribune

"Beautiful and so poignant it may induce tears."-Publishers Weekly
