As New in an As New dustjacket. 339pps. A flawless copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Yet to be read. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is equally fine; the original price is intact. SIGNED by the author -- without a dedication or an inscription -- on the title-page. This is the author's first novel, shortlisted for the 2002 National Book Awards.

"...Finus Bates has loved Birdie Wells since the day he saw her do a naked cartwheel in the woods in 1916. Later he won her at poker, lost her, then nearly won her again after the mysterious poisoning of her womanizing husband. Does Vish, the old medicine woman down in the ravine, hold the key to Birdie's elusive character? Or does Parnell, the town undertaker, whose unspeakable desires brings lust for life and death together? Or does some other colorful old-timer in Mercury, Mississippi, not such a small town anymore? A sublime portrait of the most romantic aspirations and most twisted inclinations of the bleak and lovely human heart."
