Publisher Description

From the acclaimed author of 'Provinces of Night', this is a Southern Gothic novel about an undertaker who won’t let the dead rest. Suspecting that something is amiss with their father’s burial, teenager Kenneth Tyler and his sister Corrie venture to his grave site and make a horrific discovery: their father, a whiskey bootlegger, was not actually buried in the casket they bought for him. Worse, they learn that the undertaker, Fenton Breece, has been grotesquely violating the town’s dead, enacting his perverse fantasies. Armed with incriminating photographs, Tyler becomes obsessed with bringing the perverse undertaker to justice. But first he must outrun Granville Sutter, a local strongman and convicted murderer hired by Fenton to destroy the evidence. What follows is an adventure through the Harrikin, an eerie backwoods filled with tangled roads, rusted machinery, and eccentric squatters — old men, witches, and families among them — who both shield and imperil Tyler as he runs for safety. With his poetic, haunting prose, William Gay rewrites the rules of the Gothic fairytale while exploring the classic Southern themes of good and evil.

Horrible e-copy

The one star is purely in reference to this travesty of a conversion from print to e-book. Every page has at least one instance of words flowing together that should not. In many places a chapter, paragraph or word ends where clearly the writer hadn't intended it to or worse, the opposite happens and you are simply thrust mid sentence into a part of the story w no beginning!
