About this title
Barry Hannah has been acclaimed by Larry McMurtry as "the best fiction writer to appear in the South since Flannery O'Connor." In his new novel, the first since 1991's Never Die, he again displays the master craftsmanship and wickedly brilliant storytelling that have earned him a deserved reputation as a modern master. In Yonder Stands Your Orphan, denizens of a lake community near Vicksburg are beset by madness, murder, and sin in the form of one Man Mortimer, a creature of the casinos who resembles dead country singer Conway Twitty. A killer who has turned mean and sick, he will visit upon this town a wreckage of biblical proportions. The young sheriff is confounded by Mortimer and distracted by his passion for a lovely seventy-two-year-old widow. Only Max Raymond, a weak Christian saxophonist, stands between Mortimer and his further depredations. But who will die, who will burn? Yonder Stands Your Orphan is a tour de force that confirms Barry Hannah's reputation -- as William Styron wrote in Salon -- "an original, and one of the most consistently exciting writers of the post-Faulkner generation."About the Author:
Barry Hannah, described by Truman Capote as 'the maddest writer in the USA', is the author of eleven novels. Ray was nominated for the American Book Award and his collection of short stories, Airships, is regarded as a contemporary classic. Geronimo Rex won the William Faulkner Prize and was a finalist for the National Book Award. He lives in Mississippi.
