About this title


sweet piece is Silvanus Slaughters much-discussed, erotic, expertly crafted, jaw-clenching, compulsively readable historical Southern love story thats catching America and the status quo by surprise night after sleepless night across the country. It is

From the Publisher:

Silvanus Slaughter's addictive and beguiling tale of enduring love, "sweet piece", heralds the arrival of post-modern Southern Gothic. Slaughter - a native Southerner - peppers his Byzantine tale with hefty doses of eroticism that cross the sexual spectrum, ribald comedy, and bursts of poetic tenderness, all of which seem strategically placed to seduce the reader into tackling the astringent theology and psychology at the novel's core. Additionally, the colorful parade of characters - all masters of the Dixie-bred indirect aside - brim with a sardonic authenticity peculiar to the best southern novels, but a new sensibility is at work here: borne of the same soil, tongue-in-cheek but deadly serious, tweaking the genre while caressing it, and more subversive than ever.

There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot.
