Read in December, 2005

It is not often you read a novel with an undertaker, a show salesman and an obituary writer as some of the main characters! This is a strange story about the life of several people in a small coastal town in Mississippi. The author captures the pace of small town life and the pattern of speech for Southerners very well. The voices of the main characters come through vividly. there really isn't a strong message here - just a visit from some old acquaintances. Well written.
