Über diesen Titel
An incarnate evil, youthful innocence, and burgeoning adolescent sexuality meet in a gripping Southern Gothic tale set in a 1963 West Virginia summer camp as two young girls go to a swimming hole at midnight and encounter two ex-cons. BOMC. Tour.From the Publisher:
"Ms. Phillips has again put her finger on the collective (and racing) pulse... The steamy West Virginia forest has such intensity that the book's pages almost seem limp and dappled. In this ominous garden, she carefully plots a fall, a confrontation with evil and with the desolation of family estrangement."
-- The New York Times Book Review
"In language and rhythms as carefully wrought as poetry, Phillips layers sensual detail on deeply felt emotion."
-- The Washington Post Book World
"Phillips has shown herself capable of mixing the banal and the transcendent, the ugly and the beautiful, until they become one reality, so apparently true one feels one has lived it. Bellington, West Virginia, and its environs are her answer to the Yoknapatawpha County of Faulkner... no one writing fiction in the U.S. today comes near her for linguistic beauty and atavistic, almost reluctant, wisdom."
--New Statesman & Society
